Saturday Series: Basic Photography - Exposure

Exposure is the place to start with photography since it is all about controlling how your camera interacts with light. No light . . . No photography. How does your camera decide how much light to let it? What is f-stop all about? Why does your camera consistently expose incorrectly in certain situations?

If you want to understand exposure, how your camera measures light, the ways you or your camera control exposure, and what the effect of each of those controls has on the resultant photo; than you will have a lot to gain from this class.

If you are looking for recipes on how to set your camera to shoot fireworks, or waterfalls - you can find that on-line.

I plan to cover:

  • Film/Sensor sensitivity
  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speed
  • F/stop Scale
  • Camera metering
  • Special situations where your camera will typically get it wrong.
  • Bring your camera. there will be a hands on element.

All attendees will receive a coupon to enter up to three photos into any of the Dark Room Gallery's future juried exhibits.

    Very nice space for discussions. Nice overview of exposure. Time was allotted for specific questions and that was very helpful. Ken did a nice job with examples and exercises which allowed a few concepts to gel for me in a way that reading books about exposure did not. He asked the participants what specific questions each had and made sure that the specific material was covered. All my questions were answered. It was time and money well spent.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
