 Special DSLR Still Photo Workshop Local acclaimed photographer, Paula Hersey will be leading us through exposure, white balance and framing with a digital single lens reflex camera. Bring your own camera, fresh batteries and camera manual if you have one to get a better understanding of how to take great pictures. This is for beginners who have a Digital Single Lens Reflex camera (or similar) and want to learn how to shoot with more confidence and creative control. This is a hands-on workshop with a small group and time for your questions. The instructor will cover all the topics below. We keep the class size small so there’s time for interaction and problem solving.


Buttons and dials: locating and deciphering the physical controls on your camera. Basic menus & settings: file size, quality, JPG, RAW, TIFF, white balance and ISO. The viewfinder: what information is available and how it helps you. What’s in a name: Why your camera is called a DSLR and what goes on when you take a picture. Exposure: a thorough explanation of shutter speeds, f-stops and their relationship to ISO and light. Motion blur and depth of field: understanding these creative tools is the key to better photos! Exposure modes: getting off the green Auto mode and understanding the difference between P-A-S-M, (P-Av-Tv-M). Built-in flash: when to just say no. Focusing modes: if it’s called auto focus, why do some photos still turn out blurry? Taking control of how and where your camera focuses. Techniques for stability: stance, camera operation, holding the camera.
