Description

In this beginning photography lesson, learn everything you need to get your camera off AUTO and onto MANUAL - a mode that puts YOU in charge of your camera.

The MANUAL mode allows you to take command of the camera’s important functions. The advantage is that you, not the camera, set the specific controls for the photos you take. That is critical since the settings, coming from you the photographer, are going to be far more accurate and relevant than they would be if the camera were set to AUTO.

These are some of the topics we will address in this course:

- Properly hand-holding a camera

- Understanding aperture, shutter speed, and ISO

- Finding and using the important camera buttons, dials, and screens

- Accurately focusing on a subject

- Determining the correct exposure

This seminar is more than an introduction to photography. It is designed to get you up and shooting quickly and effectively, WITHOUT having to resort to AUTO.

A very complete handout, with text and diagrams, will be distributed at the workshop.

VERY IMPORTANT… PLEASE
Be sure your camera’s aperture, shutter speed, and ISO can be adjusted manually.
Be sure there is a card in your camera.
Charge-up your camera battery, and bring a second battery if you have one.

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT… PLEASE BRING YOUR
Camera and, if you have any, your other lenses.
Camera instruction manual.
Pen and paper for taking notes.

This session will be held in the café at the Glastonbury Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Look for "Meetup" signs on my table. My cell phone number is 860-712-7098.

You might want to bring a light sweater. Some people find the place a little cool at times.

Hope you can make it!!
