MIDDLEBORO — Make it your New Year’s Resolution to learn how to use that new Digital SLR camera you got for Christmas. (Or the one that’s been left on the shelf and nearly forgotten.) The Burt Wood School of Performing Arts, together with Jon Haglof, sports editor and photographer for The Middleboro Gazette and owner of J Haglof Photography, is offering a five-week photography class starting in January.
The class, which will meet Wednesdays from 6 — 8 p.m. beginning Jan. 15 at the Burt Wood School in downtown Middleboro, is aimed at beginner and novice level photographers who want to unlock the potential of their 35mm digital SLR camera.
In this class, students learn the basics of using a 35mm digital SLR camera and work towards using the camera in “manual” mode and using the camera’s light meter and controls to expose an image correctly. This will serve as a stepping-off point to explore a variety of other camera functions, like the menu, all of the buttons, the on-camera flash and much, much more.
The class also includes lessons in composition, perspective, timing and a wide range of techniques and concepts designed to put you on the road to taking great photos.
A 35-mm digital SLR camera and a few basic computer skills are required for the course. The fee for the class is $250 for the five-week session. Gift certificates are available.To register or purchase a gift certificate for the course, contact the Burt Wood School of Performing Arts at 508-946-1071.
