Taking Control of Your Pictures

Building on what you learned in our "Getting to Know Your Camera" workshop, this workshop digs into your camera's manual exposure controls, with a focus on being in control of what your photographs look like. We'll explore approaches to making photographs that include - depth of field, focal length, color, motion blur, as well as how to freeze motion. Together we will review the main controls, shoot in the class, and review the results. Students should bring cameras that have manual exposure controls, and be ready to shoot!
