We cover basic photographic techniques, and immediately apply them through practical exercises. We discuss the decisions one must make while shooting. At the end of this course, you’ll be in control of your camera, and it will no longer make the decisions for you. You can begin to create the images that you’ve been wanting to. You’ll stop “taking” photos, because now you’ll have all the tools to “make” a photo.
The uninviting, even boring, operating instructions supplied with our cameras give little hope of being able to simply and quickly master this type of device.
However, understanding the camera settings and the digital jargon is essential. Whether we are talking about white balance, sensor sensitivity (ISO), RAW format or exposure correction, ** a simple and concise presentation of these terms is essential in order to be able to master one's camera.**
During this course you will learn how to:
At the end of the workshop, we will offer you a complete debriefing when you can share your first images taken during your training. This collective review, carried out by the training photographer, will allow each participant to ensure a good understanding but also to draw inspiration from the achievements of the other trainees.
Generally speaking, the camera lens, the notions and adjustments that result from it, will be at the heart of this workshop:
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to take portraits and landscape photos without distortion (linked to the choice of focal length), to put an artistic blur in your image, and to choose the sharpness area (linked to the choice of aperture).
How to capture movement in photography? Or how to "freeze" a fast moving object? These are two essential questions that will be answered in this third workshop on camera technique.
As well as depth of field, the management of shutter speed is a key element in photography; it allows the notion of time to be expressed aesthetically in a photograph. Whether it's a drop of water frozen in the air, a spinning thread of car headlights, or a running horse stopped in his tracks, such shots require control of the speed parameter!
The workshop will be mainly hands-on, allowing you to explore the vast possibilities that exposure time offers in terms of creation.
During this workshop you will learn how to:
During this fourth and final workshop on camera technology, light management, focus, and the use of manual mode will be on the program!
Initially, the management/measurement of light will be discussed; you will learn how to use the different modes and settings to interpret and shape the light in an image.
Focus management will also be discussed. To achieve precise focus on a moving subject, or on an off-centre element, mastering the different autofocus modes and the selection of collimators are fundamental!
Finally, the manual shooting mode will be at the heart of the practical phase; the aim will be to familiarise you with this non-automated mode, to make its use more obvious. Of course, the exercises proposed by your trainer will also focus on light measurement and the use of autofocus.
This course will teach you to:
