Become a better photographer and stop using your camera's "Auto" mode in 1 day. Have you ever wondered why after spending hundreds of dollars on the latest cameras you still can't get photos you're really proud of? We're not talking about the party snapshots you post on Facebook, but stunning landscapes that can be considered fine art and grab attention for longer than 5 seconds. Learn to capture beautiful photos and never miss a memory again. This 2.5 hour class is a crash course in digital photography. Taught in our Los Angeles studio in small groups of 15-20 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. Take this class for yourself or gift it to a friend who's got a photographic itch to scratch. Frequently Asked Questions Who are you guys? We're a team of 3 passionate photographers who have taught this class since Fall 2010. Our professional experience includes landscape, fine art, architecture, food and fashion photography. Browse our main website to view some of our work. What's the class schedule? This is a 2.5 hour class held most Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-12:30pm. It's also offered on some weeknights from 6pm-8:30pm. The dates are scheduled approximately 1 month in advance, and more dates are added every few weeks. What's the format of this class? It's a group class held in an indoor classroom setting in groups of around 15 students. I already have some photography experience. Will this class be useful for me? Yes, a class could be a good refresher for you to consolidate all the bits and pieces of knowledge you've picked up over the years. You'll also find plenty of inspiration (in the form of some beautiful photos) to get back into photography if you haven't picked up a camera in a while. You’ll have an opportunity to ask a professional photographer any burning questions. It's a great way to spend an afternoon in the company of other beginners and amateurs. However, if you already have a good handle on things like shutter speed, aperture, ISO and manual mode, then Photo Walk and Adobe Lightroom Class are a better fit for you. What kind of camera do I need to attend this class? Bring whichever camera you currently own. No need to buy anything special or fancy for this class. We explain the differences between simple point & shoot cameras and DSLRs, so you'll be better informed about what kind of camera to buy, should you decide to upgrade your current one. What else should I bring to class? Anything you need to take notes on (pen, paper, iPad, laptop etc) and a snack or drink. Have more questions? Please shoot us an email for a quick response.

No. This is not a dab lounge or an indoor smoking venue. That being said, we DO take an intermission for a reason and what you do once you leave the venue is your own business.

That means they are only required to tell jokes, get a little high and tell more jokes. If they want to do the high part with everyone, we encourage it. Otherwise, it's more about creating a comfortable environment for these comedians to get stoned without having to worry about interaction with people. Some of the comedians do not regularly smoke and it is important that we keep them relaxed. We don't want them to have a freak out because one of you is too intense. We all have that friend. -------------------------------- MORE INFORMATION For more information, please visit our Facebook page at Facebook.Com/GatewayShow Still have questions, concerns, opinions, or suggestions?
