Understanding camera’s settings and functions

Working with DSLRs can be as easy as setting the camera to AUTO mode and letting the camera make the decisions for you, right? No! A camera does not have a brain. It does not know what you want to create or what is your main subject. There are so many different conditions which can fool cameras. You have already invested your money to have better image quality but you are not quite satisfied with the results. Why is that? There are so many controls in your camera. Reading the manual can not help us. We need to understand the fundamentals. We need to visualize and experiment with the functions. So join us for this popular workshop to learn more about your DSLR or mirror-less camera, the settings and how to apply the information you gain.

This workshop is primarily intended for photographers using digital SLR cameras, but many Manual capable digital compact cameras are also suitable. Each participant is expected to bring a digital camera with a fully charged battery and memory card(s).

In this 4 hour session you will learn the Digital camera’s terminology, Menu, Functionality such as:

Shutter Speed, Aperture Value, ISO, White Balance, Histogram, Metering, Auto Focusing, File format, Camera Maintenance, Lens Focal Length, Hidden functions, and much more.

This workshop is developed for beginners and we will cover all the important functions of your camera. Please bring your camera, fully charged battery, and Memory card. We are going to try and test almost all the different settings and scenarios that the average person would encounter when taking photos.

After taking this photography class you won’t use the AUTO mode any more and you will see significant improvement in your daily photography.
