Digital Camera Intensive – Getting the Most from Your DSLR
Instructor: Kristen Perkins
6 Sessions / Wednesdays, June 5–July 10
Time: 6:30–9:30 pm
Location: Studio 20A
Digital Camera Intensive – Getting the Most from Your DSLR focuses on the robust functionality that DSLRs offer. Making a photograph well in the camera makes every step after easier. Additionally, having a competent working knowledge and understanding of photographic vocabulary makes the computer editing much simpler and intelligible. This intensive uses hands-on technical exercises, class discussion, and slide shows to help you get the most out of your digital camera. Each class will begin with a discussion of the technical assignments, and may also include readings and share slide shows of historical and contemporary photographers, based on the class’s photographic interests. Much of class time will be centered around hands-on photographic activities and group learning.
Kristen Perkins received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA in Journalism and a BA in Photography from The Pennsylvania State University. Her photography fluctuates between her background in photojournalism and documentary photography, and more loosely metaphoric photographs that are not definitively narrative or dominantly descriptive in nature. The results are ambiguous while also being expressive and accessible. Recent exhibitions include venues such as the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, Axis Gallery in Sacramento, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, and The Joyce Gordon Gallery and Hive Mind Gallery in Oakland. www.kristenperkins.com
