Digital Photo Basics

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 best 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.

Note: This course is specifically for owners of basic "Point & Shoot" digital compact cameras. If you own a DSLR camera, we recommend the Digital Photo: SLR Basics Course.
