About This Class

This class is about learning to use your DSLR in manual mode getting the correct exposure. To take great pictures, manual is best as you have complete control over the camera. I will show you the difference from using auto with examples.

The best place to start is to understand exposure looking at ISO, aperture & shutter speed. Once you understand the meaning of these and how to use them you can then begin to take great photos.
Your class project will be to take a photograph using natural light getting the correct exposure in manual mode.

This class is for beginners hoping to learn how to use the DSLR camera or for those switching from Auto to Manual.

I'm a photographer from the UK. This is something I have been doing for the last 5 years. I started in portrait & wedding photographer but have moved on to working with models doing creative portraits for work with stockists who provide images for book covers. This is what I'm most passionate about doing as I can get as creative as I like.
