Beautiful Blurry Backgrounds - master Aperture priority!
Mastering depth of field using Aperture Priority Join us for a lesson and series of exercises designed to help you understand your camera better and get great shots using aperture priority. We'll be wandering around some of London's wonderful locations. This is where taking control begins. Shooting in aperture priority gives you a huge amount of creative control over your camera. It's the mode to be in when you want your camera to react quickly to light changes but want control over the creative elements. Aperture is where the magic happens, it can mean the difference between a static or a more 3 dimensional image with beautiful bokeh where the background gently falls out of focus. It allows you to decide what stands out in your photo, not your camera. You can apply this to all styles of photography: Aperture priority can be used to shoot any subject: In this session you will learn: • Aperture and the effects it has on shutterspeed • When and how to use your ISO • Exposure compensation to aide exposure • White balance to neutralise colour casts We'll be working through a series of practical exercises which have been designed to help you understand and practice aperture settings. Working in a small group there will be loads of support on hand to ensure you get the attention needed. Lens choice: kit or zoom lens or a fixed 50mm Make sure you have a full charge on your battery This session is aimed at the beginner.
