Beautiful Blurry Backgrounds - master Aperture priority!
Let's put the "A" mode dial on your camera to good use! Join us for a lesson and series of exercises designed to help you understand your camera better and get great shots using aperture priority. 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. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN • How to use your camera to react quickly to light changes and keep control over the creative elements. • Mastering depth of field using Aperture Priority • Aperture and the effects it has on shutter speed • When and how to use your ISO • Exposure compensation to aid exposure 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. EXPERIENCE All levels welcome, no previous experience required EQUIPMENT - Kit or zoom lens or a fixed 50mm - Fully charged battery Alex[masked] As usual check with TFL for any disruptions that may delay your journey. Can't make this event, join us on another! Cover photos © London Photographic Ltd
