DSLR cameras can be intimidating if you don’t know how to properly use them. The thought of switching to away from AUTO is daunting. Uncover the true potential of your camera by learning how to proficiently shoot in Manual mode. This course is designed to guide you through understanding the various settings on your camera to enable you to capture the images you envisioned simply by using the proper camera settings. We’ll be covering everything from the exposure triangle, rule of thirds, white-balance, composition, metering tricks and tips, achieving creamy bokeh, focal lengths, creative use of shutter speeds, focus points, lens selection, lighting, etc. This is an interactive class, the more you share (and practice), the more you'll learn. This is not a Photoshop class, but I will briefly discuss downloading your files to your computer, and discussing RAW vs. Jpeg images.
