•How to manually adjust camera settings
•The exposure triangle (and why it matters)
•How to light your subject
Q - Will my camera work for this class?
A - If you are able to change your camera to manual mode, or the camera allows you to manually choose aperture, ISO, and shutter speed, then it should work for this class! If you're still not sure, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do the best I can to help you decide!
Q - What comes with the class?
A - In addition to the instruction, you will receive a packet with informational worksheets to help you remember what you've learned throughout the class.
Q - What should I bring?
A - Please bring your camera with a fully charged battery, a memory card with enough space for several images, your camera's manual (if you have it), and something to write with. (If you own any prime lenses, please bring one. These are not required but will be helpful as we learn.) You may also want to bring water and a snack.
*Please bring your camera's instruction manual if you have it.
*This class if not for anyone intending to start a photography business. If you are interested in mentoring, please call or email email@example.com for information.
Practice With Live Models [Add-On]
Practice makes perfect! During this additional hour, you will have the opportunity to work with a model (possibly more than one!) as we photograph them outdoors to gain additional practice. I'll be right there to help you with suggestions for settings and lighting, as well as to answer questions that may arise as we work. Photographing a real person will help you put into practice everything we've discussed during the previous 3 hours of class time!
If the weather does not allow for outdoor practice, we will either do it indoors or reschedule the outdoor practice for another time that works for you.
