GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAMERA

  • Apr 7, 2013 · 10:00 AM

There has been some interest in setting up a workshop on getting to know your camera.

There will be a entry level training session for Nikon and Cannon DSLR users.

The course will cover camera operations and we will dive into the menus of the camera.

Please note that we cannot cover all models so we will base our discussions on the cameras that we have. There will be some differences in the menu and operations between models but the basics will be similar.

Prior to the workshop be sure you have a fully charged battery, know how to use you command dials and BRING YOUR MANUAL

When you RSVP please indicate Canon or Nikon.  We want to have a fairly even split as we will be moving into two groups for the workshop.

This workshop will be a prerequisite for a follow-up workshop on flash that will be scheduled and posted for April 21st. This meetup is yet to be announced.

 

 

Please note: workshops are for paid members only. If you sign up and have not paid you membership fees you will be removed from the list without notice.

      April 4, 2013

    • Kaye

      I guess the proper description might be "stuffy", I meant to say don't dress too warm for this event because we don't have access to the AC in there and can open any windows.
