Camera 201: Creative Camera Control

In our Camera 201: Creative Camera Control course the emphasis is on understanding the vital roles that Shutter Speed and Aperture play in the photographic process. We'll explore how you can use Shutter Speed to either convey motion using blur effects or to freeze action completely. You'll also learn how to make use of your camera's Aperture control to soften backgrounds while maintaining sharp focus on your main subject to create striking subject/background separation. We'll also explore Exposure, Metering Modes and Exposure Lock to provide you greater creative control over the end result.

During the session you'll engage in hands-on activities with the guidance of the instructor using your own camera.
