Photography Intro

With our Anchorage photography classes, take this first to gain an understanding of the “Exposure Triangle” [shutter speed, aperture, and ISO] and how they work in concert to form the foundation of photography. Learn how and when to use manual settings to make creative photographic decisions. Learn more about how to utilize the “Elements of Design” in making composition choices. This fun and comprehensive course is a solid introduction to photography, covering both the technical and creative sides of the art through the exploration of composition. Offered in three 1.5-hour sessions [6:00-7:30 pm] at a classroom in the Anchorage Museum for larger classes, or at the Alaska Photo Treks office for smaller classes – $135 per series [3 classes].

All Anchorage Photography Class Intro students are encouraged to do a Pre-Class Assignment and bring their notes to the first session.
