Weather permitting, Brooklyn Born will be teaching an all-in-one Manual Mode lesson that will feature the “Holy Trinity” of Photography: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.  This will be a great opportunity for our newest members with DLSR / SLR settings to take more control of their cameras.

- We will meet at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.  The closest subway station is High Street / Brooklyn Bridge (A, C).  Nearby stations are York Street (F), and Clark Street (2, 3). If you are driving in, DO NOT use the meetup map.  Use Google Maps instead.

- This event begins at 12:30pm sharp!!  Please be on time!!  Check for service changes and delays.  Give yourself extra time to travel.  Once the workshop begins, I will not answer my phone - as it will be disruptive during the lesson. Usually Brooklyn's workshops run for approximately 1 hour. After the lesson, we will have a short Q&A and then practice Manual Mode around the park.

- Click on the link below to save & print the cheat sheet (color recommended).  Bring it to the lesson:

Manual Mode Cheat Sheet

- Other items to bring:

a. Pen & Notepad 
b. Your Camera 
c. Your Camera's manual  - Please read it before the lesson. Make sure you know how to access the Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO on your camera. 
d. Snacks and a drink to stay hydrated 

- Make sure you format your memory cards and charge your batteries.

NOTES:

1. We will NOT be teaching you how to use your own camera. There are too many models from too many manufacturers to know them all. We can not stop the workshop to try and figure out your particular model. Again, please read your user manual and/or bring it with you for reference! 

2. You will not leave the class shooting like Ansel Adams! You must practice and mess up A LOT! After a while , it'll come naturally.

3. Please hold your questions until the end of the lesson.  Brooklyn and I will try to go around and assist anyone that needs help.

4. Details of this event can change at anytime. Please check in periodically for updates.

We are both looking forward to share this basic knowledge and to help you all find your way to your own photographic style. If you have any questions, call or text me a message before the day of the event, or you can email me through my meetup profile. Please make sure you identify yourself in your message so I know who you are.
