This course is for anyone who wants to learn about their digital camera, how to get off Auto and start taking control of their photography. We will start at the beginning and work our way through the elements of exposure, focusing and metering etc.
We will look at the three elements of exposure, aperture, shutter speed and ISO, how these elements work together to give you a perfect exposure. We will look at the Histogram, what it does and how to use and read it. Automatic, continuous and manual focusing will be looked at along with where you should focus when taking photographs. Metering will be addressed – demystifying terms such as Spot, centre-weighted and matrix metering and when we should use these metering options. Other topics can be addressed depending on time and the interests of the class.
Course hand-outs will be available to assist you to practice the tools and techniques learnt at home.
You will be taught by means of practical demonstration and hands on experience.
