    2. A history of photography via a slide show
    3. Understanding of how cameras work via apertures and shutters

Students are given specific assignments "in the field" and there are always two instructors to give advice and hands-on instruction.  Later, each person's work is projected on a screen, so that students can all learn from each other and the goal is to provide constructive commentary to each person's work.  Its a fun class and a fun way to learn photography.
