Date: July 19
NEW LOCATION: Rodeway Inn, 6730 N Blackstone Ave Fresno
This workshop will benefit former students who have either taken our “Intro to DSLR Photography” class, who have a firm grasp of their DSLR and its capabilities. This workshop moves beyond the basics of camera settings, and we will work hands-on to explore creative DSLR techniques. Regardless of your level of skill beyond “beginner,” we are certain this workshop will help take your photography to the next level.
After a solid review of essential camera settings that every DSLR photographer must know intuitively, and exposure basics, the workshop will focus on exploring equipment option benefits and answer specific questions by attendees. The workshop will then move into several aspects of the art of photography, discussing composition and image design, backgrounds, the sought after bokeh effect, lighting (including off-camera flash techniques) and color, and strategies for “working your subject.”
We will spend time reviewing work of each participant in a constructive critique session designed to help photographers gain a broader understanding of their personal vision. Please bring 3-4 images on a flash drive to share with the group. You may email images in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
Points covered during the workshop include:
- Using your camera manually allows you to be more precise and creative with your camera.
- Working with shutter speeds and apertures allows you to freeze action or control the amount of background blur in your pictures.
- Applying exposure compensation
- Using Auto Exposure Bracketing
- Fixing common exposure problems
- Photographing backlit subjects
- Exposing for high key subjects
- Exposing for low key subjects
