On a journey of discovery through your camera
Level: Basic / Beginners
Course duration: 1 evening, 4 hours
Participants: up to 6
The time has come. After much deliberation, you decided to purchase a real camera. Beautiful device. Expensive too. Congratulations!
Or is it? The photos you take are nowhere near what you had in mind when you started your hobby. Chances are you haven’t mastered some basics that you can’t learn from the instruction manual or with YouTube videos.
The camera is a photographer’s tool. And as with any trade, it’s important to know how your tools work. But yes, lots of buttons, wheels and options.
On the AUTO mode it all works, but what is that P, A, or S? What is the right shutter speed? What is the right aperture? What ís an aperture? What is ISO and what’s in it for you? In short, how can you use your camera to capture the images you had in mind when you bought it? Start with this workshop. In one evening we will take you on a journey of discovery through your camera and teach you how to turn a snapshot into a photograph.
We cover these topics, among others:
- The meaning of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO and what they have to do with each other;
- The different buttons and functions on your camera and how to use them to take the picture you want to take;
- Matrix/multiplane, spot, and centered exposure;
- Autofocus and manual focus and which way is convenient when;
- What lenses there are, how they work, how they differ, and which ones you should have;
- The M mode: danger zone or total control?
Important to know: the goal of our workshops is always that you learn something, and that you go home smarter than you came in. Unlike other workshops, we are not trying to tell you how good wére, but want to show you how good yoúre can be with the right information and handouts. And because no human being remembers everything the first time, you’ll also receive all that information and handouts in a clear and organized manner in your mailbox afterwards. Can you get started right away.
Participation in this workshop is limited to 6 people so that we can accommodate everyone personally as much as possible.
