This intro 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 them for an optimal exposure. This workshop is part classroom instruction with powerpoint and demonstrations integrated with outdoor camera exercises. If you have already 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 journey. This is a content rich class, so we recommend bringing a notebook and a pen. We will provide handouts for you to follow along and take notes.
