Teacher: Mindy Veissid

What you'll learn in this beginner photography class:

Does your camera confuse you? This 3 hour class will cover iso, aperture, shutter speed and more. you'll never want to photograph in auto mode again! 

Materials you need to bring to class :

  • Camera with Manual Mode required. Make sure you bring this to class as we will be practicing during the class.
  • If you have a DSLR, bring the kit lens (the lens that came with it, i.e. 18-55mm) or something similar.
  • Make sure you have a memory card and fully charged battery.
  • No tripods or other lenses, etc. are needed.

Any DSLR camera or a camera with manual mode is okay. We believe in simplicity. We have a different approach to teaching - we keep it simple, make it easy and most importantly, we make it fun and empowering to learn.

Note:

We rent cameras for $30 if you don't own one.

Exact location and other information about the class will be emailed to the enrolled students 1 to 2 days before class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
We will issue a refund if the student gives us 24 hour notice. We cannot reschedule if request is made less than 24 hours before the class or after the class starts.

Digital Photography I: An Introduction (Beginners)
Reviewed by Stephanie R. on 10/10/2019
Mindy was truly amazing! I learned so much in the 3-hour beginners class, and left feeling so much more knowledgeable in how to use my camera. She was extremely detailed in explaining everything, but also keeping in mind that I have no experience with the camera when teaching which is a PLUS! I definitely would recommend this class to someone who is trying to learn the camera for the first time. Thanks, Mindy!

Reviewed by Carol A G. on 8/26/2019
The class was absolutely fantastic as the instructor was extremely thorough and use whatever was effective in getting the point through to the participants. It certainly outshine my entire online learning experiences as she was able to answer the little details that comes up during a live class that cannot be addressed immediately in an online situation and thus at times is never addressed. She illuminated for me many of the subtle nuances that I have grappled with for sometime with respect to working in manual mode and I was completely blown away with my ability after a single session that it all came together with me being able to capture images in manual mode. Big up to the instructor on a successful mission. So, to all the newbies are oldies out there who like myself have been stuck in automatic mode and still not getting the desired results, I would highly recommend this instructor to rekindle or begin your journey in overcoming the hurdle to transmission to MANUAL and discover the self-empowering ecstasy that awaits.

I had taken two photography classes in high school, but I wanted to brush up on the basics before my honeymoon - a safari in Africa. My wife needed the full intro. This classes helped us both enormously. Mindy was careful to go through everything such that it was clear to a beginner, but I didn't feel that my time was being wasted at all. I was surprised at how much was packed into the three hours given how deeply we went into each topic. I definitely well prepared for the trip.
