Introduction to Digital Photography Course

Hello, I’m teaching two Introduction to Digital Photography Courses at the Dundas Valley School of Art.  They both start on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 through to June 20, 2023 (a 9-week course).  One course is during the day from 9:30 am - 12:15 am.  The second course is in the evening on the same day from 6:45pm - 9:30pm.  Each student gets a detail handout for each lesson.

Course Description

In this beginner level course, you’ll develop a solid foundation by using your digital camera in class and receiving feedback on your photos.  Fully understand shutter-speeds, apertures, ISO, histograms, focusing and the various exposure modes available to create better quality images.  We’ll also cover how to safely transfer and backup your photos.  Bring your camera, or if you are looking to purchase, hold off until after the first class as we’ll review various makes and models. 

To register for the evening course 4A78-B Introduction to Digital Photography,  to register for the day time course 4A78-A Introduction to Digital Photography click the this link, of go to and search for the evening course 3A74-B, or the day time course 3A74-C in the Winter Semester/Photography classes.

Please bring your current digital camera to the first class, or if you don’t have one, hold off buying any, and I’ll talk with you about what types of pictures you want to take and what you want to do with the images.  Then I can suggest a number of camera options for you, based on your budget, that you might want to consider.

Students receive detailed, step-by-step handouts for each lesson, detailing all the photographic concepts and ideas discussed during each lesson.  All the lesson handouts form a fantastic, easy-to-read and understand reference guide you can refer to anytime after the course.

For me the really cool things is… I really enjoy teaching, sharing what I know with others, because it’s through that sharing that I too learn!!!

If you have any questions about the course, please feel free to email at   I’ll be happy to answer all your questions.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you as you begin your photographic journey!!
