Take control of your camera and capture stunning photographs with Photo Basics: Getting Off Auto. Learn how to choose the appropriate settings for the look you want, freeze or blur motion, and control the depth of field. Join us at Capital Photography Center and unlock the full potential of your DSLR or mirrorless camera.
Appropriate for DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras with manual exposure settings.
Today’s cameras offer the photographer a wealth of tools that can lead to beautiful photographs. Capturing the perfect portrait of a loved one, a fleeting moment leading to the winning goal, or a stunning travel photo takes practice and know-how.
Learn how YOU, not the camera, can control the final image by choosing the appropriate setting for the look you want. Understanding how your camera makes an exposure will help you decide which settings to use to freeze or blur motion and control the depth of field to capture the image you want.
This class is designed for those who want to learn more about photography basics and manual exposure settings.
Participants are encouraged to bring their cameras. As Corey discusses camera features or menu settings, you can follow along and learn how to set them. An extra battery, memory card, and your instruction manual are also very helpful to have on hand at the class.
