Thie class concentrates on the 5 most essential camera settings that have the most impact on the look of a photograph: focal length, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. In the process you'll also learn how to achieve optimal image exposures by understanding how to read an image histogram graph and adjust exposure compensation accordingly.

What past participants have said about this class
"Mary Louise – Thank you! I am getting a lot of value from this class. Your teaching style is very effective, and the examples are most helpful. While I have had my D5600 for over two years, I wasn’t really comfortable with it, and you have opened the door to its features, buttons and dials in a way that I couldn’t get from the owner’s manual or other sources. Thanks again for giving me back my enthusiasm for photography!" - Linda H.
"The Intro to Digital Photography course I took with Mary Louise was exactly what I needed to take my skills to the next level. After recently purchasing a new DSLR, I needed a good solid review of the camera settings to move me past shooting only on automatic and take more control of my photography. Within a week after the course, I was gaining confidence to explore aperture and shutter speed priority modes. I highly recommend her! She’s a great instructor with a solid command of how to teach technical skills." - Tom J.
"I took Mary Louise's 'Intro to Digital Photography' class in December, 2018. It was excellent! The class size was small, the material presented was well organized, and there was plenty of time for hands-on work and questions. She presented the topics in an orderly manner, and then made sure each student could find and use the appropriate feature on his/her camera. Copies of the presentation, as well as additional material were handed out at the beginning of class so you could follow along with the presentation and make notes. The class was jam-packed with valuable information, but nothing was rushed. I would highly recommend this class to both beginners and experienced film photographers just getting serious about digital photography!" - Ray E.
