Students will learn the ins and out of their mirrorless camera, from basic menu controls, to shooting with studio strobes.

We are proud to announce that Sony is sponsoring this course and students will have access to bodies, lenses and Speedlights. A camera and lens can be checked out during the week of class, so students do not need to bring a camera if they would rather test drive Sony’s cameras.

While this course is not limited to Sony shooters, it is a perfect way to not only learn about your mirrorless system, but test drive some of Sony’s latest bodies and lenses.

Course participants will learn the following:

  • Basic camera controls and menu functions.
  • Breaking down different focusing modes found only on mirrorless cameras.
  • Making simple, but visually stunning time lapse images. (Sony cameras only)
  • Getting the most of camera settings for fantastic landscape, portrait, and still life photography.
  • Learning how to use the Sony on camera flashes, as well as settings for studio flash work.
  • The pros and cons of lens adaptors.
