Photography Class for Beginners in LA. Are you stuck on Auto or Program mode? Has no one been able to explain apertures and shutter-speeds to you? This course will teach you how to take control of your camera to shoot in aperture or shutter priority modes. You will first learn what exposure is, and how your camera controls it using aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Then you will learn what both aperture and shutter speed are, why they are important and how you can confidently control them using aperture and shutter priority modes without missing your photos. We will be meeting at Griffith Observatory and just before the sunset "Golden Hour" allowing the group access to great lighting and superb sunsets. During this walk we will go over each mode, practice shooting in each mode and allow you to take the skills we talk about during the course and apply them to real life scenarios. The course will run for about 2-2.5 hours, so budget out some time to get those batteries charged and lenses clean! This course is for you if you are a beginner DSLR user and want to understand exposure, aperture and shutter speed. You know you can get better and more creative shots if you go off auto, and you want a step-by-step hands-on guide showing you exactly what to do, when and why. What are the requirements? -You need a DSLR camera that can use manual mode -You need to know how to download your photos to a computer so you can look at them on a big screen. -You MUST know how to switch your camera on, use a memory card and take a photo. What am I going to get from this course? -An understanding of what aperture, shutter speed and ISO setting mean and how to use them to expose correctly. -By the end of this course you will be able to shoot confidently in both aperture and shutter priority modes. What is the target audience? -Beginner DSLR users who want to be able to shoot confidently in shutter and aperture priority modes, without risking missing any photos. -This course will appeal particularly to people who enjoy step by step learning, where each section builds on the previous one, with a clearly obtainable goal in mind.
