Have you started to explore the different shooting modes in your camera, but are stumped in very low light or backlight situations? Have you shied away from shooting in Manual Mode (M) because it seems too overwhelming? Have you been experimenting with shooting in Manual and have no idea why your pictures are blurry or over/under-exposed?
This workshop is designed for Mamas who have basic familiarity with their digital SLRs and who have been shooting in the semi-automatic modes (P, A/Av and S/Tv mode), and are ready to take control of all kinds of different lighting situations in the fun-filled world of shooting in manual (M) mode!
Manual mode is great for tricky lighting situations (shooting in backlight, low natural light), and for times when the semi-automatic modes are not giving you the style of picture that you're looking for.
The workshop will cover:
-A quick review of the exposure triangle (aperture, shutter, ISO) and focusing
-What the heck your meter (the -2/+2 scale in your viewfinder that moves all the time) is trying to tell you
-How to know which metering mode you should be in
-Exposing for different lighting situations (with lots of hands-on practice!!)
-How to use light to maximize the creative impact of your images- inside or out
To apply the concepts, we will be having hands-on shooting exercises and live models to practice on!
The small class size and women-only environment will ensure that you have plenty of opportunities to ask questions of the workshop leaders and have a fun, community learning experience! You won't believe how far you'll advance in just one afternoon!
We look forward to an afternoon of fun and Mama bonding!
