What you'll learn in this digital photography class:

We have modified our in studio class to be done completely online. In this 5 week course you will learn the photography essentials we cover in our Digital Photography I.

Learn to go beyond automatic mode with one of our knowledgeable instructors. Learn to capture beautiful landscapes and portraits.

We will take you step by step to show you the ins and outs of your camera.

Every week we will go over new photography techniques.

In this course we will go over:

  • ISO
  • Focusing
  • Aperture (blurry background, landscapes)
  • Shutter speed (freezing action, motion blur)
  • Manual mode
  • Tricky lighting situations
  • Fill in Flash

Every week you will speak to one of our instructors and you will go over your photographs, how to improve them, and make them even more interesting.

Learn to control your camera and never rely on automatic mode again!

Required Materials:

  • A For this course you will need a DSLR camera, Mirrorless camera or Compact camera, which has Aperture (A/Av) Priority, Shutter (S/Tv) Priority and Manual Mode.
  • A laptop/desktop computer with a camera/webcam
  • Zoom App (Recommended)


  • Can I continue my in studio Digital Photography I online?

Yes. If you would like to continue your course online, we can accommodate that. We will find a class that matches where you left off and you can continue from there.

  • There are only 5 classes in the online course and I paid for 6 in the in person class, what’s going to happen to that 6th class?

We are not offering class #6, as it is mostly practice. Once the health risk is over you can come and make-up the class you are missing.

  • Once health risk is over, can I join the in studio class?

Yes. If the health risk is over you can join our class in studio. You can pay the difference and complete the course in our studio.

Although PhotoUno has no obligation to provide make-up classes for students who can’t attend a class of the course they have signed up for, we will do our best to find a solution by:

1. Finding possible sections of the class for the student to attend in order to follow the sequence of the course. This option is free. This can be done up to two times for every course.

2. If we are unable to find a convenient date, we will offer the option of a private make up class that will be charged at a rate of $35 an hour.

PhotoUno is not obligated to grant student requests to switch courses.
