Who is this class for?
You are the proud owner of a brand new Digital SLR Camera but are overwhelmed by all those buttons.
You LOVE Photography, but sometimes the camera can actually get in your way of taking a picture.
You’ve played around with some of your camera settings but need a little guidance.
You feel that you are not getting the most out of your camera.
You are frustrated with the settings and end up switching back to the Auto mode.
Now is the time to Get out of Auto!
I’m going to help you live, in-person and on-line in my new course “Get out of Auto”
This online photography course is specifically designed for anyone with a digital SLR camera who find themselves reverting back to the Auto setting despite knowing their camera can do so much more.
- This will be a 4 week course and classes will be held on the following dates: Tuesday 1/29, 2/5, 2/12 and 2/19 at 8pm EST.
- Classes will be held in a live “classroom” online so there will be an opportunity to ask questions and get feedback on your work.
- If you cannot attend the live session, recordings of each week’s class will be made available along with course notes.
- Students will access the classroom by via their computer and will be able to see the information presented on screen and hear me, your teacher.
- You will also be able to join in discussion, ask questions and share your work with the other students.
What You’ll Learn:
- Week 1: Meet Your Camera – Finally find out what all those buttons are for, what happens when you press that shutter button and why that photo never comes out the way that you intended.
- Week 2: Exploring the Creative Zone – Learn how to use your camera’s semi-manual modes and discover when are the right times to use them.
- Week 3: See the Light – This week you’ll learn how to control the photographer’s raw material – light. We’ll look at flash, metering, white balance and more.
- Week 4: Introduction to Composition – In your final week we’ll put everything you’ve learned so far together and look at how to compose that perfect shot.
Class will last 1 hour with a 1/2 hr question/answer time at the end of class.
There will be a weekly assignment, individual critique and feedback will be given to each student.

Here’s what some of my past students have to say…
“Ingrid’s course was exactly what I needed to understand the additional functions available on my new Nikon. After determining my level of knowledge and what I wanted to achieve when taking pictures, Ingrid explained and demonstrated how each function (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, metering) would affect the picture. Her materials and examples are thorough and helpful for follow-up reviewing. Thank you, Ingrid – you’ve made me a smarter photographer !”
“I had a wonderful time with Ingrid – she was extremely efficient in her instructions, and gauged the topics based on my experience level and the specific things I needed to work on. I learned way more in those 2 hours than I ever imagined and am very enthusiastic about practicing with my new knowledge.”
Meredith, Sandy Springs
“Taking Ingrid’s class helped to improve my photography and confidence behind the lens. Her knowledge of my camera and coverage of information, on it’s features has allowed me to take my skills to the next level.”
The cost of this course will be $199 payable at time of registration.
