Are your photos too dark? Do you have trouble with the blur associated with camera shake or subject movement? Do you want to learn exposure to further control the creative process and break yourself free from the automatic camera modes? If you have an SLR type camera and want to learn more then sign up for the RJSnowPhotography Exposure Workshop. You’ll learn a ton, have amazing fun, and best of all it is free (with the exception of buying your own lunch).
Shannon from Lasting Moments Photography and the Mommy Going Crazy blog will team teach the class with Rob. Shannon is a wedding and family photographer and also a Canon shooter (let’s not hold this against her). She will also be present during the photowalk portion of the workshop to help the other Canon shooters figure out their cameras and Rob will be there to help the Nikon shooters.
This workshop is for people with SLR type cameras that really want to learn the nuts and bolts of photography or just hone their skills.
The workshop will cover the following subjects:
- Shutter speed and aperture defined and “why do I care?”
- Control depth of field (advanced subject)
- Exposure using Manual Mode
- Exposure using Aperture Priority Mode
- Exposure control on “Your” camera
- Q & A
The workshop will be held in Salt Lake City on Saturday February 28th at 11AM. We’ll eat lunch at a restaurant (TBA) and discuss exposure control. Expect this portion of the workshop to take less than an hour. Following lunch we’ll wander the streets of SLC practicing what we learned about exposure. We estimate that the photowalk portion of the workshop will take around an hour and maybe longer if everyone is having fun (but don’t worry, you can leave at any time).
Shannon and Rob will be available to help others figure out their cameras. We believe that this photowalk segment of the workshop will be very valuable to everyone. For those that have exposure figured out, the emphasis will be control and creative use of depth of field.
Similar to our last photowalk, we can share our work in a flickr group that will be created specifically for our workshop. We are probably going to limit participation to about 25 people so sign up quickly by commenting to this post or sending me an email using this form with Exposure Workshop in the Subject field. Hope to hear from you soon!
