About This Class

This is the second class in a series of three designed to get your camera off automatic and to shoot completely in manual exposure! In this class, we’ll discuss what exactly Aperture is, why we want to control it, and how it can drastically affect our overall image. Have you ever wondered how photographers blur the background of an image? Or how to make landscape photographs where every single part of the image is tack-sharp? This class is geared toward photographers who want to have full creative control over their cameras. There is no prior knowledge or experience required but I strongly suggest taking the first class Fundamentals of ISO and Shutter Speed: Create Images That Freeze or Blur Action.
