PixelsAndSuch Photography Classes

“Classes” are presentations that cover content and important photography techniques. They are instruction and discussion based and typically contain numerous demonstrations. Although they are not “shooting based” classes, we suggest you bring your camera, if available, to the class.

  • Introduction to Digital SLR Cameras

    Many people purchase new digital SLR camera systems to the tune of thousands of dollars, but never learn how to use their most basic features. If you have a new digital SLR, or you are considering buying one, this class is for you. Topics covered will the fundamentals of digital SLR photography including: terminology, camera controls and menus, shooting modes, the intrepreting histograms, raw and jpeg, fill-flash, focusing modes, programs modes modes, caring for your camera, color management, and preparing your pictures to be sent to your computer for processing.

    This class is recommended for people who want to understand digital SLR photography and cameras. It is a prerequisite for other PixelsAndSuch Workshops. Although this is not a shooting based class, we recommend that you bring your Digital SLR (if you own one) to the class.

  • Introduction to Camera Techniques

    This is a great class to take if you are interested in learning how to take better pictures with any type of camera. We’ll discuss rules of composition, basic use of natural and artificial light, exposure, lens effects, how to make your images sharper. Portraits, Landscapes, and Action pictures will be covered. PixelsAndSuch recommends this class before taking this class before taking any of our PixelsAndSuch workshops.

  • Moving Beyond Program Modes Class

    Are you interested in doing more with photography than just using your SLR as an expensive point-and-shoot? If you are ready to take your photography to another level and learn the foundations to making creative images, this workshop is for you. We’ll discuss the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and exposure modifications and how they affect your pictures. We’ll talk about metering and focusing and camera techniques for more creative images. Lastly we’ll introduce the concept of a digital negative, and much like film, discuss the concept of making a digital negative. If you’re thinking of taking a college photography class, or you’re going on that big photography vacation, or you’d simply like to become a better photographer, this class is a great way to start.

  • Introduction to Apple Aperture 2.0 Photography Class

    So you’ve taken some great pictures, now what? Apple Aperture is a powerful digital workflow tool that will change the way you process digital images. This class will explore the entire workflow from the digital negative, to processing large quantities of images, to outputting these for the web. You’ll learn how to process thousands of images quickly, and output them to slideshows, the web, or a printer. And you’ll learn how Aperture can help you organize every image in your collection. If you wondering if Aperture is worth the investment for you, or if you have purchased Aperture and want to learn how to use it most effectively, this class is just what your digital camera ordered! 2 hours of presentation style instruction.

  • Lighting for Photography Workshop

    This is a great workshop for the person who wants to begin using artificial lights for photography, video, or film. We’ll use strobe (flash) lights to learn the basic principles of lighting, light control and modification, and explore ambient, available, household, and studio lights. Lighting for various budgets and purchasing lights will be covered.

    I am interested in a beginners photography class for both my adult daughters and for myself. I would like to give the “class” as gifts to my daughters. One has two small children and the other is expecting her first. Photography is important to our family to capture sweet moments forever. Are there such classes and what would be the cost? We all have SLR cameras but, honestly, I know we are not using them to their potential. Thank you for your time. Becky Gibson
