Beginners Photography Class

Learn how to use your camera in Beginners Photography Class

In digital photography (unlike film, especially negative film) photographers need to be very careful about setting the exposure properly. A digital camera can not accurately measure the exposure in AUTO mode. Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO are the most important parts of the exposure, and a photographer needs to know how to set the exposure for taking better images. In Beginners Photography Class Exposure Edition, we cover how to control the exposure, using different metering modes, and create outstanding pictures.

Are you ready for Fall Colour Photography?

Autumn is a very beautiful time of year especially in British Columbia and the Lower Mainland area has wonderful possibilities for photographs showcasing the Fall colours. It’s hard to predict when the Fall Colour is going to start, but even if the trees haven’t changed yet, the Autumn Equinox, officially September 23rd this year, signalled the beginning of autumn and offered a multitude of photographic opportunities. The air is getting cooler and the hues and tones of summer are preparing for the shift to an autumn palette.

What is covered in Beginners Photography Class?

Fall colour photography needs special skills, as the shadows are more directional and light changes quickly, so you need to know how to set your camera properly. One of the biggest challenges in Fall colour photography is finding the right point of view and understanding how shadows and lights can change the depth in pictures. Beginners Photography class covers important topics such as Exposure, Metering the Light, Setting the camera to achieve the most possible clarity and sharpness in each and every photos.

Fall Outdoor Photography Class

Fall Outdoor Photography Class 

Two part workshop for taking amazing Fall pictures 

Autumn is almost here with exciting opportunities to photograph the colourful images of Fall. Fall is my favourite season because of the light, the vibrant colours and being out in the fresh outdoor air. Taking photos outdoors, especially in autumn, needs specific know-how techniques. Our Fall Outdoor Photography Class is scheduled for November 12th from 9 am to 3:30 pm and all camera makes and models are welcome.

Composition Rules

Learning Exposure and Composition Rules can change your photos to amazing art.

This is a two part class; the first part is a three hour classroom and outdoor session where you will learn how to control the settings on your camera, how to meter or read the light, how to compose your photos, etc. With outdoor photography you need to understand and change the camera settings on the fly. In outdoor photography the light can change so quickly, or your subject may move, so you need to be able to compensate for these changes as quickly as possible. The main part of Fall Outdoor Photography Class is dedicated to finding and changing these settings in your digital camera quickly without wasting any time. Here is an example of how fast the ambient light can change.

In Outdoor Photography the ambient light can change quickly. In our Outdoor Photography class you learn how to change the camera settings fast

I took these photos about 5 minutes apart; although my exposure is correct in both photos, you can see how the overall effect of light has changed from one image to the other.

Another important topic we are going to cover in the Fall Outdoor Photography Class is Composition, and how to find the right angle. I took these photos from different heights and angles.

Importance of Manual Shooting

Improve your Outdoor photos by Manual Shooting

On June 18th we are going to have another Outdoor Photography Workshop here in Abbotsford, it is a full day outdoor photography and you will have a good chance on trying different techniques including Manual Shooting.

Here are few testimonials from our previous students:

Krystal Creelman wrote:

Ted’s an amazing teacher. He answered our questions with such passion and clarity, it got the whole class excited and eager to learn more.   Thanks Ted for giving me the confidence I needed to put my creative ideas into ‘focus’. Even though class is done, I now reserve every Wednesday for photography. I’ve already signed up for another class & look forward to taking more in the near future.”

Caroline Cari said:

“I took the outdoor photography course last weekend and it was a lot of fun. I learned new tricks I never knew before and how to take better pictures. Thank you for an excellent experience and looking forward to joining more classes.”

For more Testimonials check our students testimonial page.

I would like to thank everyone for joining the class and all the amazing and useful feedbacks we received.

Here are some photos from one of our previous Outdoor class:

And here are some photos that Caroline shared with us

Does Manual Shooting really improve the photo quality?

That is a tough question to answer. But as a rule of thumbs, in Manual Shooting you are in full control over the settings and exposure. With this amount of control, you need to be more careful about the exposure and need to constantly check the light and adjust the exposure.

How can you master Manual Shooting?

In short, you need to train your brain to continuously check the light and exposure meter of your camera. Practicing and education are essential in achieving this skill. That is why I arrange the Outdoor Manual Shooting hands on workshops. So pick up an assignment for outdoor shooting and only use manual shooting for this exercise. You may slow down the process of taking your desired photo, but will end up with more impressing pictures at the end of the day.

Manual Exposure Shooting

Is Manual Exposure Shooting Obsolete?

On Saturday April 2nd we had our first Manual Exposure Shooting workshop of 2016. It was an awesome day to practice all manual settings on our camera. Manual exposure shooting requires some extra skills and when you master these skills, you won’t want to go back to any other settings. This was verified by the end of the workshop with all participants agreeing with me and committed to staying in Manual Exposure shooting mode.

Our next Manual Exposure Shooting Workshop is scheduled for June 18th

Manual exposure shooting

Manual Exposure Shooting allows us to adjust the exposure precisely.

In the middle of our workshop, we came across a group of athletes from Abbotsford Filipino Martial Arts Club and Brando Marasigan (Head Instructor for the group) allowed us to take some photos while they were practicing. Workshop students enjoyed the opportunity to use manual shooting modes in a real life scenario. Here are some photos:

And here are 2 photos that Ian Lowe took from these amazing athletes:

What is Manual Exposure Shooting workshop about?

This workshop is specially developed to give you confidence to master using your camera in fully manual settings, covering everything from Manual Exposure to Custom White Balance.

Why are manual exposure and settings important?

Almost all pro photographers use manual settings and the main reason is they have full control over their camera. Cameras, while technologically sophisticated, do not have a brain and it is very easy for the brightness/darkness of background or foreground to push the camera to capture incorrect exposures or White Balance.

What is covered in the Manual Exposure Workshop?

An important part of good photographs is accurate exposure. In the Manual Exposure Workshop you will learn how to use the hidden functions in your camera to make correct exposures each and every time by using different metering modes, ISO, and even White Balance. You will also learn how to use the Histogram to make informed decisions about exposure and be able to fine tweak your photographs right at capture.

How long is the workshop?  

Manual Exposure Shooting workshop is a two part class and is five hours in total

How many students will be in this workshop? 

There are only nine seats available for the Manual Exposure Workshop to maximize learning and provide more one-on-one instruction to all participants.

How do I register for the Manual Exposure Workshop? 

Just go to our UPCOMING CLASSES page and select Manual Exposure Workshop and follow the onscreen instructions to register or visit our office during business hours to sign up for this wonderful class.

As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any question.

Happy Manual shooting,

Ted and the Omnilargess Team
