Ever wonder what he P, A, S and M (or other equal manual settings) 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 learn what the manual modes on your camera do, what modes to use for certain situations and to free yourself from automatic point-n-shoot forever. Following the presentation will be a 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.
About the Presenter:
Clifford Pickett is professional commercial photographer, event photographer and educator based in NYC. He first picked up a camera while spending a year traveling through Europe after having earned his MBA early. Like many travelers, that passion for seeing and experiencing the world is precisely what ignited the spark for photography. Clifford has spent all of his time since learning how to see and capture the world with the fresh eyes that traveling affords. He hasn't been shooting for 40 years, he hasn't been alive for 40 years. He hasn't been classically trained in the fine arts either. He is entirely self taught, through books, workshops, seminars, DVD's and real life, it is this that perhaps may be his greatest asset, the ability to relate to the amateur photographer. Not having been so far removed, it is this understanding that allows him to help his students see through the cloud of misinformation and confusion and marketing spins to find real answers to questions from those who share the same passion for the world, and need to capture and share it, that he does. Leveraging both the business and photographic skills he has developed while managing a private testing laboratory, he recently is the owner of a photography company specializing in the construction industry and a commercial video production company. His corporate clients include Estée Lauder, Sephora and Clinique.
