This is a one-day, practical, hands-on workshop aimed at an intermediate level. An in-depth guide using your DSLR or mirrorless digital camera with full understanding and creative control.
This workshop assumes that you have moved past “Auto” and are using Aperture, Shutter and Manual Modes for most of your images. We will expand each mode in detail and cover the best subjects to use them on.
This workshop will get you familiar with working with “Live View” (on a Tripod) understanding the benefits of Exposure Simulation and a live histogram metering. Learn how to read your image review with RGB histograms, Highlight burnouts and exposing to the right.
Our in-field creative exercises will cover: getting the best out of different focal length lenses, understanding Hyperfocal Focus and creative composition. The day will end with a group review session to look over the images captured along with a basic introduction Post Processing with an overview of RAW processing in Adobe Lightroom.
This is designed as an intermediate level workshop for people that already have an understanding of basic setting and how to shoot in manual mode. If you are yet to master the basics please look at Photo School 1: Taking Control.
