This course is designed to teach you skills to be able to adjust quickly in a variety of shooting situations most commonly found while photographing either for personal work or on assignment. You will learn and apply how to constantly change, while shooting, four very important elements: aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance - to create a different look and feel of your photos. These changes will be made while you're shooting so that you can easily adapt to a variety of lighting situations, changing scenes outdoors, as well as different locations with a model, including the inside of a vintage building. Making spontaneous, creative and intuitive decisions are important keys to becoming more proficient as a photographer and at the same time being able to have complete control over your images.
This course will take place in the classroom, then proceed outside for some to get some guided instruction. A model will be provided.

"I just love taking photos! I own a Nikon D300s and have RARELY shot in MANUAL mode because I didn't understand it. I had convinced myself that it was way too complicated for me to comprehend, but after taking YOUR workshop I'm shooting in MANUAL for the rest of my photography days... smile! YOU turned the "lights on" in my head. I now see and FULLY understand what MANUAL mode is all about and why it is best to ALWAYS shoot in MANUAL mode. Thank YOU so much, Gregg!"
