Digital cameras are everywhere these days but learning how to use them isn’t always easy. Does your camera take pictures only or does it also shoot video? Are your images recorded to an internal hard drive or do you need flash media? What is Flash media and how can this camera be used to take great pictures?

Award-winning Photojournalist and Cinematographer H. Woflgang Porter will take away the mysteries of using your digital camera. In the fun course Digital Cameras De-Mystified, students will learn basic camera controls, how to better expose and compose photos, the differences in recording media used by today’s popular digital cameras and how to download/store your precious images.

Students will need to bring to class a digital camera and its manual, recording media, computer connection cable(s) and one small USB Drive 1GB or larger capacity.
