New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA)

Photography:
Learn about your DSLR camera with Russell Wolfe (session #2) Time: Saturday, June 23, 1pm-5pm Instructor: Russell Wolfe Location: NOCCA, 2800 Chartres Street ABOUT THIS CLASS If you have a digital SLR camera but would like to take it beyond automatic modes, this is the class for you. We'll cover basics like lighting, contrast, aperture, shutter speed, and focal length. With each topic we'll talk about how you use it on your camera, then practice by taking photos. In addition to the "how-to" with your camera, we'll also talk about the "why" by looking at some of the science behind it. REQUIREMENTS Enrollment is limited to adults 18 and over. Students will need to bring a digital SLR with battery/charger/SD card and at least one lens. If available, students can bring any additional equipment including lenses, filters, tripods, etc. Enrollment is limited to adults age 18 and older. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR Dr. Russell Wolfe moved to New Orleans in 2007 from Nebraska, where he studied Physics, Biology, and Mathematics. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Tulane University for research focused on understanding how stem cells respond to the physical forces that occur during large-scale bioprocessing. While at Tulane, he also taught hands-on undergraduate engineering courses in robotics, electronic circuits, and medical device design, in addition to mentoring undergraduate students in research practices, public presentation, and professional career development. Dr. Wolfe’s artistic endeavors include ceramics and digital photography. NOTE A minimum number of students must enroll in this class for it to "make". If fewer students enroll than are necessary, the class will be cancelled and full refunds will be issued. If we have to cancel the class, we'll make every effort to notify students at least one week before the first class meeting.
