Intro Digital Photo: Learn with a professional in historic Pioneer Square
Light travels in through the lens, passes the shutter, and hits the sensor - want to know how to control the camera or understand the light to better your images? This is an all-levels-all-cameras lesson, on the basics of digital photography. All cameras? Yes, I have shot with and taught on all kinds of cameras, from iPhones to Canon DSLRs. All levels? Yes, I run into practicing photographers who don't know this information, or they're in need of a refresher! $24? Yes, It's an introductory price for a introductory class. I'll have more complex lessons with more complex pricing later on. 10:45am Doors Open (holler at your new friends and say hello to your host) 11:00am Lesson Begins (get your cameras out, it's fumbling w/ buttons time) 12:15pm Practice Time (it's time to bowl baby ... with bumpers!) 1:00pm Last Call / Q&A (squeeze every ounce of info out of the pro) 1:15pm Doors Close (you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here) There is limited space to allow plenty of hands on help for your particular needs. Check out your host's work: www.lindseymillerphoto.com or @lindseymillerphoto Yes, bring and use your own camera for this class. No, you do not need a big fancy DSLR camera - don't know what a DSLR is? Come learn! We'll be indoors, at Pioneer Collective, a co-working space in Pioneer Square. If the weather is nice, we may just practice our new skills outside. Parking is FREE on Sundays, and no, there is no Seahawks game that day in town, I already checked :) All major busses and trains stop in Pioneer Square. Things we'll be discussing: - the buttons on your camera - if jpeg or RAW is right for you - the difference in depth of field, motion blur, and camera shake - basics of aperture, shutter speed, & ISO - basics of exposure and the light meter - how light works with and/or against photography - your limits on your equipment - Instagram, the computer's part in digital photography, and various wonders of the universe. Tangents are inevitable.
I'm Lindsey Miller, a professional digital photographer, and a visual problem solver. I have a Masters in Digital Photography from SVA in NYC. I am based out of Seattle, but travel frequently for work, especially Dallas. I geek out on tea, nintendo, produce, and science fiction. I am quite fond of teaching photography. I get a good feeling when that light bulb finally sparks and you're putting the pieces together. It's an addictive process. I've been shooting since 2002 and teaching since 2009. I've taught semester courses at universities, private lessons, and workshops. I teach all parts of photography from learning the camera, to perfecting style and portfolio.
