Manual Photography Basics

Dates: September 9, 16, 23

Take your photos to the next level and enter into the world of manual mode photography. Via Zoom, students receive guidance and individual attention while learning how to shoot in manual mode on their DSLR camera (It’s really not that scary!)

We’ll cover the basics on shutter speed, aperture and ISO and discuss lenses and their uses. Then we’ll move on to compositional ideas, discuss natural and studio lighting, and explore the use of a few more functions on the camera. We’ll take on photography assignments between class meetings and together share our learning and our successes.

Participants come away with a solid starting point for manual mode shooting extending well beyond the automatic capabilities of their camera. All sessions are geared toward individual interests and skill level, although we’ll start with the basics.

A DSLR camera, charged battery and SD card are required. Access to the users manual for your camera is helpful (and advised). If you do not have a paper copy of your manual, typically a quick google search will allow access to a pdf copy online.
