Digital Photography: The Point & Shoot Camera


A 2-Day Class
Saturday, January 9 & 16
Ages 16+

Having solid knowledge on how to operate your point-and-shoot camera is the key to making great photos.

A point-and-shoot camera is any camera that lets you take pictures fast, without worrying about focusing the lens. Most have built-in flashes and a variety of automatic settings. The lens may zoom in and out, depending on the model, but generally can’t be removed from the camera body.

During this class, you will learn how to unlock the “DSLR-like” capabilities of your point-and-shoot camera, including:

  • How to take advantage of various shooting modes (M, A, S, P, C)—forget Auto Mode!
  • Image quality settings
  • White balance
  • How to get around not using your flash
  • How to best use the pre-set shooting modes . . . and more!

Kim Sholly has been teaching and sharing her love of the black and white darkroom since 1990, first in Madison, WI as a mini-course instructor at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and then at the Center for Photography at Madison (which she co-founded).

She moved to Greenville, SC in 2002 and founded, directed and taught at the WestEnd Darkoom Photo School and worked full-time at the Metropolitan Arts Council, a non-profit arts organization advocating and supporting the thriving arts community in Greenville. She has exhibited her work widely around the Midwest and in Upstate South Carolina. She moved to Buffalo in late summer 2017 and looks forward to being part of CEPA and Buffalo’s vibrant photography community. And until she gets a darkroom set up in her Elmwood Village home, CEPA’s darkroom will become her beloved creative space.

She shoots primarily with homemade pinhole and 1960’s plastic toy cameras and says that the fun of shooting low-tech is the unpredictability of the resulting images, images that cannot be choreographed or reproduced and are only discovered later in the darkroom.
