The Light Factory

Intro to DSLR Photography at the Mint Museum


Overwhelmed by all the manual settings and buttons on your camera? We can help.

You can master aperture, shutter speed, exposure, metering, electronic flash, and white balance for color corrections and creative effects. We will introduce you to basic compositional principles that will push your images to the next level, making them more professional and interesting. This class is hands-on and includes in-class critiques and extended shooting assignments in Center City Charlotte.

You should bring a digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera (with manual controls), the manual for the camera and we’ll supply the rest. Class size is limited to 12 students.
