Focus Group SLR Workshop

Did you buy an SLR camera but are disappointed with the pictures?  Are you intimidated by the jargon used in your camera’s manual?  You are not alone!  One of the most popular courses I teach is an SLR workshop for serious hobbyists and those considering photography as a career. Learn how to use your digital SLR camera in either a classroom setting or in smaller, more intimate versions of the same workshop. Skill level is beginner to intermediate. Topics include: exposure control, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, flash techniques, composition, and use of light. This workshop is a mix of discussion and hands-on exercises.

There are three variations of this course based on how you learn best:

1. Photography (Digital SLR) Workshop: offered at CCBC – 20 students, 6 hours, $110
This is a large classroom setting.  Groups are created based on camera manufacturer to allow students to help each other through the learning process.

2. Focus Group SLR Workshop – 6 students, 6 hours, lunch included, $220
Held at my home, this small group setting allows for more specialized attention given to each student based on their needs and equipment.

3. 1on1 Private Consultation – 1 student, 4 hours, $480
Also held in my home, this private consultation can be the quickest way to a complete understanding of your camera.

The next available course is the Focus Group SLR Workshop
Date: Tuesday, August 17th, 9:30am-3:30pm
Where: 417 Sherwood Drive, Beaver PA 15009

    I am interested in the class but won’t have the money by next Tuesday, unfortunately. When will your next class be?

    Hi Heather,
    I am a novice in the photography field. I am wanting to take your class at ccbc but am wondering if it is the right class for me. I am purchasing a nikon SLR camera and thought your class might be a great class to take to get me started with my new camera. I know absolutely nothing about photography but do have an interest in better photography and would love to get started somewhere. Please let me know if your class might be a good place for me to start or not.

  • Hello! I was wondering if you’ll be offering classes like this in the future. I won’t be having my baby until summer time so I’d love to take a class or two to hopefully learn the skills to take pictures half as beautiful as yours!

    I recently purchased a Nikon 3100 and I’m interested in taking your digital photography class at CCBC. I wasn’t sure which would be better a class at CCBC or one of your smaller classes that you have in your home. Do you have any scheduled in the near future?
