Who should attend:

Anyone who wants to go beyond point and shoot, understand the basics of exposure and camera controls of digital SLR photography.

What to expect:

During this half-day class, we’re going to inspire you how to make better pictures, by teaching you the basics of exposure and how to use your camera more effectively. Learn what all those buttons, dials and menus are on your camera.




TIP: Use scene modes when you can, especially in snow or at the beach when there’s bright light. Those modes are designed to help in those intensely lit situations, by keeping the surrounding scene looking bright while allowing your subject to be seen.

Topics will include:

  • Learn how to combine, shutter speed, ISO and aperture to form a proper exposure

  • Translate exposure modes on your camera to take great photos

  • Use exposure modes and compensation to get more creative with your photographs

  • Understanding how to set your camera using the shooting, playback, retouch and custom settings menus

  • How to set up the camera to share images via Wi-Fi

  • Using white balance for correct exposures

  • Composition—how to frame a scene or portrait for a great photo

  • When is flash necessary and how to add it
