Beginner session to get off Auto setting

I've noticed a wave of new members who mention they are looking for help with camera handling. I'm sure a few of us can pass on some technical knowledge.

I have initially set the attendence at 5 beginners. If we get some interest from more experts within the group to join us we can expand the group. Please only RSVP if you are a complete beginner looking to get away from the green square for this session. We can look at running some more advanced sessions at a later date.


In this session we will cover:

1) What the 3 main adjustments to captured exposure are.

2) How exposure is measured by your camera

3) Examples of the ranges of shutter speed and aperture selection and the effects they give.

4) How changes to focal length affect the relative size appearance of objects in the frame


Bring along your camera of any type but please prepare by finding out which buttons to press to make the adjustments to ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. If you have the manual to your camera, bring that with you. And charge your batteries! ;-)

    very useful! many things you can't just learn by reading.. practical training and learning together by experienced photographer helps a lot. Thanks Guy.

    Guy really has great teaching skills. Although I arrived late and on top of that started freezing and got hungry; I managed to grab some basics about camera exposure.

    The explanation was clear and was really good for me. I learned a lot new things. I taught my camera was getting to basic, but the problem was not the camera but me. It was really good and there was time to ask questions. Thank you!
