Section 4 Nerdy But Needed

  • Long exposure and showing motion
  • Presets and settings
  • Iso, Shutter Speed, and Aperture and how this triangle works together

If you do the assignments then you should have a pretty good understanding of how to use a modern camera body.

Since everyone uses different editing programs this section just covers basic information on manipulating a photograph. 

  • Software Programs 
  • Monitor settings 
  • Transferring and Importing

After completing this section you should be able to professionally edit a photograph.

I'm Glenda Christina

While shooting a senior portrait session one afternoon, I asked my model what classes she was taking to help here relax for the photoshoot. She informed me she was taking photography classes but the class was boring.

What? How can photography be boring?  After a second senior told me about their boring photography class, I just knew I had to do something. That is when the seeds were planted to start our ACLP photography course.  

Mixing important instruction with creativity and fun helped us to put together this engaging photography course that we hope you enjoy as much as we have enjoyed putting it all together.
