Photography Express-Fundamentals with Francisco Marin


The weather is warm and the outdoors is inviting us to learn and take photos! It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or an experienced photographer and you just want to refresh your skills. It is time to take control of your camera!   Learn when to use both Auto and Manual mode and how to select the best settings to get the results you want. In Photography Express you will learn how to focus, get the right exposure and how to control the white balance for your selected subject.

This express class is a 4 part series. Each class is 3 hours. You may choose the morning session or evenings.
Session 1 and 2 will be in the classroom with some hands on practice.
