Photography courses - Course 1 : Camera Settings (online)
Camera Beginner: master your camera
Learning to use the manual mode of your reflex or bridge camera is an important step towards taking better pictures.
Operating manuals provided with the camera are monotonous and do not really show all there is to know about the many buttons and parameters available.
Understanding the parameters of the camera and knowing digital photography vocabulary is the first key step. White balance, sensor sensitivity (ISO), RAW format and exposure correction are only examples of terms that will be presented in a clear and concise way during the course.
This workshop will teach you how to:
- Use the right image format between JPEG and RAW
- Adjust the white balance
- Correct the exposure
- Set the ISO on the camera
- Read a histogram
- Use the “P” shooting mode
At the end of the workshop, we will off a complete debriefing so you can share your images from the session. This collective review by the photography teacher will ensure that everyone has a good understanding of the workshop, as well as the chance to be inspired by other students' work.
In this course, which is held by videoconference, small practical exercises are planned. Therefore, please make sure that you have your camera loaded and equipped with an empty memory card. Your mentor will establish the practice according to the environment of the house / apartment.
This course lasts 3h30 and includes a theoretical explanation and exercises (within the limits of space of the house/apartment).
This beginner's course is part of a series of 4 introductory courses for beginners (available by videoconference and face-to-face, in different durations). These courses are offered separately: courses 1, 2, 3 & 4. By booking all 4 at the same time, you will receive a discount.
A meeting notice will be sent a few days before the date of each course, with the URL address to access the virtual classroom (no account to create, no data recording).
It is perfectly possible to attend two courses in the same day or four courses in the same weekend as these courses have been designed for this pace.
