What you'll learn in this dslr class:

If you have  a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) and are still shooting on automatic (or it's still in the box), this class is for you. Students will learn how to use all the settings and functions of their cameras as they practice taking digital photographs. 

Topics will include 
  • auto white balance
  • correct exposure for digital images
  • shooting in different file formats
  • lens choices
  • flash and much more. 
Sign up for this class and get the most from your camera. Bring your digital SLR camera, manual, and connecting cords to class.


Q: Is the school disability-friendly? 
 Yes. The JCC is completely accessible. You take an elevator from the lobby down to L3, and the studio is in the hallway to the left of the elevator bank.

Q: Do you provide a letter of completion? 

Q: Are materials provided and included in cost of the class? 
 No. Bring your digital SLR camera, manual, and connecting cords to class.

For programs that meet fewer than 3 times: during the costs and booking commitments associated with one or two-shoot programs, the school regrets that they cannot offer any school's credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, the school cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond their control.

For programs that meet 3+ times: students may receive school's credit for withdrawal from a program when their cancellation request conforms to the timetable outlined below. There is a $15 processing fee for all transfers and cancellations. 50% school credit will be granted for withdrawal from a school program when a written request is received before the second class. After the second class, JCC credit cannot be granted. (however, students may transfer from one class to another of equal or lesser value if there is space availability and with the program director's approval.) All cancellation request must be submitted to CourseHorse at [email protected] Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request and be mindful of the timetable described above.


If there are other sections to make up classes in, it should be okay, as long as it's not the first class.

Question from HUES75 H.
I only have a mirrorless (Sony Alpha 6000) camera. Could I still take this class?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Your camera should be just fine for this class. The settings and adjustments that this class focuses on are similar between the two types of cameras.
Question from Livia
Hello, this course give us any credits or hours?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! Unfortunately, this class will not earn towards any CPE credits nor will the school issue certificates/letters of completion. We currently do not work closely with our schools regarding CPE credits, but it may be something we investigate in the future. For now, we recommend you contact the school directly to inquire about CPE programs. On the other hand, if you were looking to know about the CourseHorse credits/rewards points earned for this course, this class will earn you 2250 points!
