Share What is PASM or P, Tv, Av, M? Understanding the Manual Settings on Your Camera

Event Details

Ever wonder what he P, A, S and M or (or P, Tv, Av, M) stand for on your camera and what they do? Are you still stuck on Automatic Mode and want to take control of your camera?


In this Workshop, you will have a one-hour presentation on using the manual modes on your camera, what modes to use for certain situations and to free yourself from automatic point-n-shoot forever. Following the presentation will be a one-hour Skills Lab where you will be taken out by your Presenter and asked to shoot in manual mode using what you learned in the Workshop. Your Presenter will be available for hands-on help.


Should you feel you require a one-on-one session for this topic, one-on-one lessons are available. Please contact your Organizer Dawn Wayand at for more details and to schedule your one-on-one session.


About the Presenter:

Alan Lugo is from Atlanta GA and moved to New York City 3 years ago. He currently lives in Brooklyn and works as a freelance photographer. He started to take photos a few years ago and since then his work has appeared in several shows around New York City as well as various magazines around the world. Photography is something he's always been fascinated with. He purchased his first camera 4 years back and hasn't put it down since. His goal is to learn every angle of the art of taking pictures and to share his knowledge with others.
