Point and Shoot Photo Basics

CCOM 2801

If you are new to digital photography and completely baffled by your digital camera, this course is for you!

Starting with the buttons and cords, we will discuss your camera’s features and how to make them work for you. You will receive a balance of technical and creative insight, become more familiar with your camera and the technology involved in digital photography, and learn basic compositional techniques to help you take better photos.

Please note: This course is specifically for owners of basic 'Point & Shoot' digital compact cameras. For owners of DSLR cameras, we have the Digital SLR Photography Basics Course.
