This workshop is focused on introducing the beginner photographer or new camera owner to the basic concepts of composition and exposure. You will be shown how to work withthe major camera features required to take your first steps forward in photography. With these skillsyou can begin to take better photos of any subject and get more enjoyment from your photography.

Lesson takes place inside and outside (weather permitting) and contains a lot of information(don't worry, I will give you all your notes already written so you can just focus on the class).

Who Should Take This Class?:

  • Beginner - who need an introduction to their new cameras and to photography basics.
  • Novice - who wish to get an all inclusive review of the basics. It's a great refresher course for those who learned (but forgot) this information previously.

Beginner Photography Subjects Include:



Exposure | Depth of Field & Shooting Modes


Understanding Exposure:

  • Most training out there tells you "what to do" NOT "why to do it and how it works".

  • Understanding the why and how allows you to tackle new situations not just those situtions used within a single example.

  • Achieving proper exposure. (working with shutter speed, aperture and ISO).

  • Working with exposure compensation.

  • M, A, S (Tv), P

  • What are they for? When to use them.

Depth of Field:

  • DOF and aperture (f/stops) focal length, sensor size, subject distance.

Metering Modes:

  • Controlling exposure via metering modes.

  • Targeting exposure to your subject.

Focusing:

  • Focusing techniques

  • Focus area modes
