Pre-registration is not required for this event. Simply join us upstairs at the space.
This is the orientation and basic safety session required to get started on your own projects.
Things this course will cover:
Basic Composition – Rules you should learn to use when composing an image. Then when to throw the rules away.
Shooting People – You might be surprised to learn that there are a LOT of rules about this. You might even call them “laws”. Make people look their best.
SLR 101 – Your shutter speed, aperture, and ISO are frenemies. Learn how to make them get along with each other, and even with Becky. (it doesn’t matter how bad her acne is, she’s a person with feelings darnnit!)
The Big M - How to use your camera in M (Manual) Mode. Why you should use it and why you should never want to use that green auto mode again.
Camera Optimization – The default settings on your camera are not always the most helpful. Bend them to your will “with this one weird trick” that’s not acai, but rather, Custom Functions and Settings.
Flash – Most consumer and prosumer DSLRs have a built-in flash. It’s really good to use in some situations, in others, it ruins everything. Yes, everything. Have you seen oil prices? Dollars to donuts there was an improperly used built-in flash involved.
RAW – Whether or not it’s Monday night, you should be shooting in RAW. What you’re missing if you’re shooing jpg, and how you could be making more work for yourself brotha!
Shooting and Critique time – Come ready to be judged! But don’t worry, you get to judge others too. Positively… This is honestly the best part. You might make us “oooo and ahhh” and putting things into practice will help make everything stick.
