The School of Photography offers a comprehensive, online 6 week program that will help you gain more confident about your photography and  gain control of your camera instead of your camera controlling you. You will learn how to navigate through the menus of your camera. You will know which setting is best for the image that you are trying to capture. Now is the time to take your camera out of the “Auto” Mode and see what you are really capable of creating.
