Digital Photography Classes at the Delaware Art Museum

Two classes, by Danny Schweers and Kathy Buckalew, are offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring of each year at the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington, Delaware. Kathy also teaches a Summer class. These classes are for people who enjoy taking pictures and want to learn on how to do it with a good camera using all the settings.

Danny's next class at the Delaware Art Museum will cover eight Tuesdays, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., April 22 to June 10, 2014. There is also a Wednesday evening class there, taught by Kathy Buckalew. These classes are for people who enjoy taking pictures and want to learn on how to do it with a good camer.

In Danny's first class, we will review all the ways in which exposures can be varied including subject selection, lighting, focal length, focus, shutter speed, depth of field (aperture), ISO (sensor sensitivity), resolution (quality), and white balance. At the end of the first class, the students will take photos in shutter priority, aperture priority, and manual modes.

By the end of the course, every student will be familiar with their camera and able to produce good images in nearly any situation.

Specific projects Danny's students will complete include a series of photos experimenting with shutter speed, depth of field, ISO, artificial light, and subject and background. Other projects will include ten portraits of an individual and a series of photos that tell a story.

There's more to photography than mechanics and pixels!

A good single lens reflex digital camera is preferred, or a digital camera with a manual shooting mode. If in doubt about whether your camera meets the course requirements, give Danny a call at 302 475-0998 or click here to contact Danny Schweers by email.
