Did you get a new camera for Christmas? When you opened the box and saw all those dials and knobs were you confused? Or do you have a camera and just want to learn how to take better pictures? In this class, we will cover camera technology, this will include items such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO. We will learn how to make proper exposures, stop action, blur backgrounds. This class will cover the creative side of photography. We will talk about highlights, shadows, and compositions using leading lines and rules of thirds. Generally, we will learn how to make our images better, more professional.

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.
