A Beginners Guide To Controlling Your Camera: Mastering Manual For Portraits


Jackie Fox


Wednesdays, 5:00 – 6:30 | October 26, November 2, 9, 16


Tuition: $150


This is a beginning course for people who want to learn more about how to use their DSLR camera. Lesson one will include basic camera functions and the ways we control the light that creates your photographs. By lesson four, you will be making frame-worthy photos of people and the environments you find them in. 


This is for you if: 

  • Turning your camera on and setting it to “AUTO” is your default, and you just know it can do more than that (it can!).

  • You are a true beginner or you are rusty with your camera and need a refresh.

  • You want to make perfect portraits ‘in-camera’, or without the use of digital photo retouching/editing (although there will be a short lesson on this)

Students must have their own DSLR camera. Camera’s will not be provided.


Jackie Fox is a seasoned portrait and wedding photographer who has been making photos of people for the better part of two decades. She photographs the faces and moments in people’s lives that tend to mean the most to them: from newborn babies to high school seniors, from wedding days to 50th anniversaries and everything in between.
