Manual Exposure











Manual Exposure

This intro to manual exposure workshop is designed to get you familiar with the manual exposure mode on your camera so you can take complete control of your camera and be independent of automatic and semi-automatic modes. This workshop teaches the fundamentals of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, and how they work together and balance each other to achieve a properly exposed image. You will learn how to adjust each of these functions independently and use your camera's built-in light meter to properly balance these functions. This workshop format is classroom instruction with powerpoint and demonstrations with integrated outdoor photo exercises. If you have taken our Introduction to Photography Workshop, this class is the perfect follow up and will include some review and a lot of new information to get you moving forward in your photographic education. This is a content rich class, so we recommend bringing a notebook and a pen. We will provide handouts for you to follow along.

This workshop covers:

• DSLR cameras & equipment

• Viewfinder features

• Manual camera controls

• Metering light

• Fundamentals of manual exposure

• Shutter, Aperture, ISO

• Controlling motion and depth of field

• White Balance


Bring your DSLR camera, lenses, battery, and memory card.

    I do not have a DSLR camera. I only have a regular digital camera. How much are they and where can I buy one?

      They start at around $600 and I would recommend buying it at Nelson Photo Supplies on India St. In Little Italy. Tell them you were recommended by Nick and Don from The Workshoppe and they'll take care of you.

    I have not taken intro, is this class to advance for me to be my first?

    • Donald C.

      This class shouldn't be too advanced for a first class. This used to be our intro class long ago before we decided it would be best to teach manual exposure in a class of it's own.
