Students will learn the basics of how to use a camera for this 101 beginner’s course. Bring in your camera that you’ve been meaning to learn the ins and outs of, and we will go over important settings that help create the best images possible. We will go over composition, ISO, F-stop, Shutter Speed, and the Light Meter. If those features make you scratch your head, then this class will give you all the knowledge you need. Time will be spent going through each setting, but also outdoor to practice making sure you really get the hang of it.

About the Instructor
Julia Forrest is a Brooklyn based artist. She works strictly in film and prints in a darkroom she built within her apartment. Her own art has always been her top priority in life and in this digital world, she will continue to work with old processing. Anything can simply be done in photoshop, she prefers to take the camera, a tool of showing reality, and experiment with what she can do in front of the lens.
Julia is currently working as a teaching artist at the Brooklyn Museum, USDAN Art Center, and Abrons Art Center. As an instructor, she thinks it is important to understand that a person can constantly stretch and push the boundaries of their ideas with whatever medium of art they choose. Her goal is for her audience to not only enjoy learning about photography, but to see the world in an entirely new way and continue to develop a future interest in the arts. www.JuliaForrest.com
