Beginner session to get off Auto setting

I've noticed a wave of new members who mention they are looking for help with camera handling. I'm sure a few of us can pass on some technical knowledge.

I have initially set the attendence at 5 beginners. If we get some interest from more experts within the group to join us we can expand the group. Please only RSVP if you are a complete beginner looking to get away from the green square for this session. We can look at running some more advanced sessions at a later date.

 

In this session we will cover:

1) What the 3 main adjustments to captured exposure are.

2) How exposure is measured by your camera

3) Examples of the ranges of shutter speed and aperture selection and the effects they give.

4) How changes to focal length affect the relative size appearance of objects in the frame

 

Bring along your camera of any type but please prepare by finding out which buttons to press to make the adjustments to ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. If you have the manual to your camera, bring that with you. And charge your batteries! ;-)

    Hej Guy, I am so sorry I did not show up yesterday! I was caught up outside with my little baby and I did not have any access to internet, so I could not inform you on time. Wish you guys had a great time!

      No problem. Thanks for letting me know and hope you and the baby didn't get too wet in the rain. I'll add another event soon and let you know so you can get on the list.

    Not sure why it's now showing up as a 5 day event! It was just 2 hours but I will run another to cover anyone interested. It was a little disappointing that from 8 people on the list on Tuesday night only 2 showed on Wednesday evening.

    And now it is raining! Hong, we're under the canopy at Dramaten (you can see it from the park)

    August 8, 2012

  • Guy P.

    As its not raining right now let's meet in the park

    August 8, 2012

  • Guy P.

    Do you have another suggestion Fraggla?

    August 8, 2012

  • Guy P.

    Good question Fraggla. If it is raining at 6 then meet on the Dramaten steps across the road from the park.

    August 8, 2012

  • Fraggla

    Hi all, I would like to know if there is a plan B in case of rain. Thanks.
