Beginners Photography

AGES 16+

(8 video sessions)

This basic photography class is designed for anyone who just bought their first camera or someone who has had a camera for a while and would like to get back into photography. It will cover all the basics of what each button and knob does and their purpose in helping to create a great picture. You will learn why AUTO is a 4-letter word. Students will become familiar with settings, like Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, when to use the camera in program mode, and when to use the camera in manual mode. Students will learn about the technology and composition and the art of making a wonderful image. When weather permits, students can photograph outdoors for assignments. You will gain a respect and love for photography, plus above all, we are going to have fun.

Students will be responsible for their own camera and equipment.

Link to Zoom video session will be shared with students via email.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)


**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
