Don't let the camera control you. Take over. Ask any photographer the first step to taking better pictures, and their answer will always be the same: turn off your camera’s automatic functions. In the Control Your Camera workshop, the first thing we will do is switch to full manual mode so that we control our cameras… not the other way around. The Experience: This three-hour workshop will cover the basics of controlling exposure and white balance in any camera with manual controls. Whether your interest lies in portraiture, landscapes, or street photography, the material we cover will help you better understand your camera and make better exposures. No experience is required. The following areas will be covered: - Exposure and the reciprocity system - ISO - Aperture - Shutter speed - Contrast ratios - Controlling light - White balance - Composition and framing You will be expected to bring your own camera: a digital SLR is preferred, but any decent camera with manual controls is acceptable; even newer smartphones will get the job done. Film shooters are welcome too! Participants are advised to bring a warm coat. Time and weather permitting, we may go outside and do a little street photography.

I am a filmmaker and photographer from Colorado. I studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and I taught Film and Media Production at Western Iowa Tech Community College. I've taught filmmaking in Nicaragua, directed movies in Wyoming, and hypnotized chickens in Minnesota. Now I'm living in Chicago, and I'm eager to share my love of film and photography with you.
