My wife enjoys shooting photography and so I did my research on the top recommended amateur cameras, and for Christmas I bought her a Nikon D5300 DSLR. And it’s a great camera, but neither of us really have any experience with the more advanced workings of photography aside from point-focus-shoot.
I took a summer class as a teen and so I’ve got the basics of framing and the rule of thirds and such in my pocket, but that was back in the days of basic analog cameras. So the deeper workings of her fancy camera are just as much a mystery to me as her, and she has never taken any Photography classes at all.
So I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on where to get a Basic Photography/DSLR 101 class? We don’t need anything super complicated as this is more for just nature style shooting on our vacations. Preferably like an evening class that we can do together as a date night.
Any suggestions are appreciated. I do not know if Makerspace offers a photography classes or even if this is the right category in the forum to be asking, but figured it was worth a ‘shot’. (Photo pun fully intended!)
Merry Christmas everyone!
