Description

While using the scene modes in your camera is an easy way to collect a snapshot on the fly it does little to tap into the power of your camera and generally it creates flat images with little pop or wow effect. In this class you will learn how to manually control the settings in your camera so you can start creating photographs that will make your friends think a professional photographer made them for you! This class is for anyone with a camera that has manual settings and is looking to take their image capturing to the next level. I have been fortunate enough to build a career out of shooting live music and portraits that have been featured in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, TIME, and several other publications, and I constatntly use basic manual photography techniques that I hope to pass on to you with this class.
