DSLR + Mirrorless Basics Workshop: learn to use that fancy camera

  • Steadfast Supply 300 Tingey Street SE #140 Washington, DC 20003 USA (map)

Learn how your camera works so that you can create the perfect image. Composing the frame beautifully, choosing the appropriate settings for your camera, and understanding how exposures are made are just the beginning. This class is specifically designed for those who want to learn more about how their own cameras work and those elusive manual exposure settings.

We will cover composition and framing basics - and how you can begin, and sustain, making beautiful and unique images

  • Master your camera’s manual exposure settings!

  • ISO - what is it and why do I care?

  • Leave with a solid understanding of Depth of Field and Aperture controls

  • Creating artistic images through manual exposure settings, i.e. learn to capture movement

  • Best practices for using auto + manual focus

  • How to handle White Balance (and avoid weird color casts!)

  • Which lenses are best for you?

You'll walk away with your very own photography manual, priceless new knowledge about the workings of your camera, and 2-3 new images that you create during the workshop.
