Homework for Free Summer Workshop: ISO 7/21/12

Hello Photographers:


Thank you to those to those who attended today’s ISO workshop.

It was a beautiful day at Battery Park -- we picked a nearby shaded area where we had a very short and easy lesson on ISO and metering.  Brooklyn also gave a quick review of Aperture and Shutter Speed.  Afterwards, we grabbed a bite to eat, and went on a ride on the Staten Island Ferry to shoot photographs of the Statue of Liberty and the City.  Then a few of us walked a bit into Wall Street and South Street Seaport for some more photos.

We encourage you all to continue practicing in Aperture Priority and Shutter Speed Priority modes.  Refer to the cheat sheet we gave out.  This week, shoot 3 or 4 photos of the same subject with different ISO settings.  Make sure you adjust you metering and your Aperture/Shutter Speed to compensate for a better exposure.  Remember, the higher the ISO -- the more sensitive / lighter and grainier (noise) your photos will be.  Upload them into the album and list your settings for each photo.

Our final workshop this coming Saturday 7/28/12 is shooting in Manual Mode -- where we take everything we learned about Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and metering, and put them all together.  You will be in full control of your camera!!  Your photos will not be perfect, and you will make mistakes. But as long as you keep practicing, refer to your materials (your camera’s user manual, the cheat sheet, your notes taken at the workshops, etc.) -- shooting in Manual Mode will become second nature and you will eventually find your own photographic style.

We look forward to seeing you all for this final summer workshop.  If you are not on our mailing list, please check the event page periodically this week for any changes and/or updates.


Best regards,
