If you like “people photography” this workshop is for you.
Now you have that nice DSLR and are still puzzled why there are so many buttons and why they are there. This class will take you to the next step and explains the inner works of your camera and how to use it to your advantage. You will be able to take better pictures the moment you understand why photographers are using all these settings.
Join us in this fascinating adventure of “people photography” using portraits.

We will begin in the classroom covering the following topics:
• Camera modes
• White Balance Settings
• Exposure Management
• Depth of Field
• Metering Techniques
• Focus Modes and Techniques
• Lens Types
• Using a reflector
• Catch lights
• Intro to posing
• How to direct people
• Intro to composition
• And much more…………


After the classroom portion we will head out to practice some of the techniques taught in the class. This will help reinforce the lessons from the class. The instructors will be on hand to provide guidance and to answer questions.
Bring your camera, manual, empty memory card, and a charged battery. If you have a reflector, bring it!
