    1. Beginner Photography Classes in San Francisco

San Francisco is a beautiful city and learning how to photograph your surroundings with your date ranks high on our date ideas. This 3 hour class is a crash course in digital photography. Taught in their San Francisco studio with a group of 20-25 students, you’ll learn what all those knobs and dials on your DSLR do, the settings to use in any lighting condition, and even what kind of camera to buy if you don’t already have one. You’ll understand concepts like exposure, aperture, depth of field and shutter speed, and probably never want to use the “automatic mode” again.
No prior experience or camera equipment is necessary to attend. Just a desire to improve your photography skills.
