Just because it’s basic, doesn’t mean it’s not important. Learn the fundamentals of properly adjusting your camera to obtain the best quality image possible.
Who should attend: Beginner and intermediate photographers that want to take their photography to the next level by understanding the concepts involved in creating better images using their own equipment, and how to put it all into practice.
You’ve spend hundreds of dollars on your DSLR and you're still getting images that are too dark, too light, and/or out of focus, etc. Although the processors in these cameras are very sophisticated, they don’t really know WHAT you are photographing! This is an interactive workshop where you will bring your camera and learn how to adjust the settings to achieve the proper exposure and focus in your images based on the environment and setting of your shoot.
If you want to learn how to take your camera off of automatic and be able to produce higher quality images, then this workshop is for you. Now you will learn how to take control of your camera (instead of your camera taking control of you) for the ultimate in creativity.
You will learn:
the simple relationship of ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed; the how and when to adjust them
how to shoot in manual and semi-automatic (aperture & shutter priority) modes
how to fine tune the exposure in your image to obtain the best quality
what is HDR, and how to set up to shoot it
RAW vs JPEG, we'll discuss the pros & cons so that you'll be able to make an intelligent decision
find out why your images don't look like the scene that you thought you captured, and how to correct this
blurry images? you wanted them razor sharp – Steve will show you how
controlling depth of field (how much of your image is in focus)
how to properly set your white balance to obtain the best colors in your images
….and so much more…..
There will be a handout for you to take notes on along with reference charts to take home as guides to assist you on your next shoot.
What to bring: Your fully charged DSLR camera, and a pen.
Optional: Your camera's owners manual (to use as reference if needed), and a highlighter.
