Learn the Highs & Lows of Shutter Speeds
This is part two of a four part series. Tonight's class will spend two hours learning what shutter speeds are, how they affect exposure, aperture, ISO and the overall appearance of your photos. By the end of the evening, we guarantee you'll be an expert when it comes to shutter speeds.
Shutter Speed is not only is an integral part of the Exposure Triangle, but is one of the factors that controls one of the most important aspects of your photos, blur and apparent sharpness of your photos. During the class Jeff will use actual photos and other visual teaching aids to insure that your understanding of shutter speeds is complete.
The class is a more formal structure (unlike our Tuesday night classes) and Jeff will be using both a Keynote (PowerPoint) Presentation and a White Board to explain the basics of Aperture. The entire class is recorded, with audio, and will be available to download or stream for FREE for those that attend. If you do not attend the class or you miss a class, the recordings will be available to purchase.
Following the class is a 10 question quiz that will help you understand what your strong points and weak points are in your understanding of shutter speeds. Results are not shared and it's just a learning tool for the student.
The following two classes will cover ISO and the Camera. One topic will be covered each night. They will follow the same structure. Classes are held at Suite 4K Studios of Ulmerton Road and US 19 in Clearwater/St. Petersburg.
What FCCP Members are saying about the class.
Great class and great studio! I love learning in depth how a program works, so this class was spot on. I will be there next week! . . . . . . Kelly
Great group of people, great teacher & a comfortable, quiet meeting site! . . . Jane
I have had good instructors in the past, but Jeff Donald is by far the best. He speaks clearly and loudly, he knows his subject, he knows what is important to cover, he stays on task, he repeatedly asks for questions, he is friendly, he has a sense of humor, and he is everyone’s idea of a leader. . . . . . John
There will be lots of learning and laughter. Jeff Donald will teach each session and he's a certified Photographic Counselor by PMA. He taught photography for 4 years at Montana State University. Jeff worked for Apple Computer, Ritz Camera Center, and several regional camera retail chains and has worked with 10,000's of customers during that time. Experienced members will be on hand to share tips & tricks and more.
