Briefly...

Learning to use the manual mode of your reflex or bridge camera is an important step towards taking better pictures. Operating manuals provided with the camera are monotonous and do not really show all there is to know about the many buttons and parameters that are available.

Class No 1: Camera settings (Beginner level)

3h30

Learning to use the manual mode of your reflex or bridge camera is an important step towards taking better pictures.

Operating manuals provided with the camera are monotonous and do not really show all there is to know about the many buttons and parameters available.

 

Understanding the parameters of the camera and knowing digital photography vocabulary is the first key step. White balance, sensor sensitivity (ISO), RAW format and exposure correction are only examples of terms that will be presented in a clear and concise way during the course.

 

This workshop will teach you how to:

 

-    Use the right image format between JPEG and RAW

-    Adjust the white balance

-    Correct the exposure

-    Set the ISO on the camera

-    Read a histogram

-    Use the “P” shooting mode

Key Details

- This beginner class is part of a pack of 4 workshops (14 hours)
- A summary of the notions covered in this course will be handed out at the end of each session. A “meeting form” with the exact meeting point will be sent to enrolled participants a few days before class
- Number of hours for this course - 3.30 hours. Depending on the number of students, the course can be completed in 2.30 hours, 3 hours or 3.30 hours. With very few participants, the quality of the class and the time allocated to each one to ask questions allows the course duration to be reduced in order to keep the chosen dates and avoid cancellations. For more information, see our Terms of use page
- The workshop is composed of a theoretical part, practical training and a debriefing
