These classes pick up where the Beginner Digital Photography classes leave off. With the basics of exposure and focus you learned in the first three classes, these intermediate sessions will dig deeper into your camera, other photography gear and on to the more creative aspects of photography.
What you will learn in this class series:
- The light meter: understanding how your camera reads and measures light and how it can sometimes cause exposure problems.
- Exposure control: bracketing, exposure compensation and reading a histogram.
- Tricks of exposure: how to get good exposures in tricky situations including backlight and high contrast settings.
- Support & stability: keeping your images sharp and vibration free through the proper use of tripods, monopods, stance, leaning & breathing.
- Dust & cleaning: when to worry about lens and sensor dust and how to get rid of it.
- Focal length and maximum aperture: deciphering the numbers on your lens.
- Lenses: creativity vs practicality (and cost!). How to select lenses as creative tools. A look at ultra wides, telephoto, zooms, primes, macro and some surprisingly affordable options.
- Sensor sizes: full frame vs. cropped sensor and what difference it makes to your photography and lens selections.
- Creative motion blur: using slow shutter speeds as a creative tool for both low light situations and to purposely blur movement.
- Composition: the architecture of a photograph, some rules and when to break them.
- The art of photography: stepping beyond the elements of exposure and focus and thinking about color, gesture, timing and other creative aspects of photography.
We've also added a shoot and review session which is usually the favorite part of any workshop!
