About This Class

Get out of Automatic Mode: The 3 Things You Need to Know

This class is designed to help you get the most of your camera by switching to Manual mode. From the start of the class I am going to ask you to set the dial to "M" and follow me as we challenge ourselves to shoot photos we want to share.

It will focus on the 3 Photography Fundamentals- ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture (also know as Depth of Field). The class will have you understanding photos in a new light (no pun intended), applying the skills you learn here directly to the camera in front of you. In turn you will take fun, vibrant photos and understand how and why they came out that way. From portrait to landscape, this class is aimed at those who own a camera and never dared to turn the dial. Until now.

Be creative, daring and take great photos!

This girl is great. Simple explanations, she is clear and concise. Easy to listen to. Takes great photos. The one of her Dad is adorable. Well done. Take this class if you want to learn, the essentials of great photo taking.
Super helpful in my transition from Auto to Manual photography. I really appreciated the definitions and example shots!
So helpful!!! I've been studying the basics of photography at uni for the past 5 months and still couldn't understand these three settings. You explained them perfectly, I finally have an understanding of​ them. Thankyou!
