Description

Whether you just invested in a fancy new DSLR or have had one for years, if you are still shooting in AUTOmatic, listen up! You are missing so many of the amazing things your DSLR is capable of. When shooting in automatic your camera doesn't know if your subject is the cute baby in front of your camera, or the car off to the side. Yes DSLR technology is amazing, but it’s not perfect...unless you know how to utilize it! The only way that you can really get the images that you want, is to be the one in control of your camera. If you are taking pictures with your “fancy” camera only to be disappointed with what your images look like, and you’re confused why your camera seems to suck so bad, we can help!

Yes, you could sit and thumb through your camera manual, which literally feels like it’s in another language...but chances are you will walk away more confused than informed! We want to offer you a hands on approach to understanding your camera's features and give you the confidence to start shooting in Manual! Yes Manual, where you control the camera instead of leaving it to guess..and read your mind when you shoot. We want to teach you how to understand the functions and purpose of shutter speed, aperture, ISO and composition. Then you can finally get a clearer understanding of how photographers get that blurry background, those crispy clear images and lighting to properly expose your subject. It can be overwhelming, so in this workshop we want to show you the things that you need to know about your camera while keeping things as simple as possible. Once we break down the relevant information and leave out information that don’t need, you will see that shooting in manual isn’t that complicated after all!
