[OFF] Auto [ON] Manual - Be The Camera - Workshop

  • Dec 11, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

If you are looking for a class like none other that will open your mind as never before, you MUST attend this workshop! Members who have taken this course have seen a dramatic improvement in their photos and most of them never touch AUTO again. If you want more confidence in working your camera, you NEED to attend this unique class!!!

What members are saying about the past [OFF] Auto [ON] Manual Workshops:

“Another great session Mark...Thanks for making it all click (pun intended).” - Annie Kroll Coppock

“Great workshop with a LOT of good info...and cool cheat sheet! Thanks guys!” - Sara

“I learned a lot of great information that I will definitely use from now on.” - Alicia

For the relationship between you and your DSLR we have the perfect solution:

Off-Auto, On-Manual: Be the Camera!

This is a presentation unlike any you have seen with hands-on learning and live demonstration to back up the facts.

Though technology can be smart, there will always be a place for human minds in the mix to get it just right. A light meter can tell you what aperture, shutter, and ISO to use, but a photographer can do the same simply by knowing the basics of his or her camera and following a simple formula. Some of you have ideas in your head and aren't sure how to get your camera to capture that idea. Wouldn't it be nice to just know what shutter speed, aperture, and ISO you need to get it right the first time...on the first shot?

Portrait mode works well for a while, but your photos will always look the same. Auto works well in some situations, but will never match the quality of a properly set camera on Manual. At this workshop we're going to teach you how to be "one" with your camera. No matter what brand of DSLR camera you use, this class will unlock its creative doors.

Beginner Photographers... this class is for you!

Seasoned Photographers... everyone needs to go back to basics now and then!

We'll be touching on the following and more:

  • What is ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed and how do they work together? Camera basics.
  • Which setting takes priority in different situations? Fast moving subjects, harsh shadows?
  • What white balance should I use? Sunny? Tungsten? Custom? Who is Kelvin?
  • What's the difference between shooting RAW and JPG?
  • How do I use my light meter properly and how does my camera measure it?
  • If I'm in a hurry to capture a shot and don't have time to get the settings perfect, what do I do? Aperture (Av/A) and Shutter Speed (Tv/S) Priority.
  • What is the difference between spot, center, and full-frame metering? What works best in different situations?
  • When do I use autofocus auto, autofocus single, or autofocus continuous/servo?
  • Overview of basic camera operations

All of these and more will be answered and of course there will be open time for questions if you have any. All you need to bring is your camera and lenses. There will be lots of examples and helpful handouts for you all to take home and look at for further review or refresh.

Hope to see you there!
