Beyond Beginners Digital Photography Workshop with Dave Strauss
Want to be smarter than your camera? This workshop is an introduction to the four fundamental variables in photography and the benefits and opportunities of photography in manual mode. The current generation of “smart” digital cameras has amazing capabilities, but they make decisions for you about focus, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO based on algorithms that may or may not comport with your creative intentions. This workshop is intended for smart-camera photographers who want to venture beyond the “green” and automatic scene modes, and to learn how manual mode opens up creative opportunities and improves photographs in challenging situations. Participants should have a digital camera that provides for manually setting aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focus. Participants should determine how to switch into manual mode, and how to make changes to aperture, shutter speed, and ISO on their respective cameras prior to the workshop. This is NOT a beginning photography class. Participants should be familiar with their cameras and have some experience taking pictures with that camera.
