LENGTH OF THE COURSE
3 Sessions usually from 10:00 to 14:00.
Each session is divided into camera technique and artistic analysis. Here’s a rough outline of the major topics:
In the first class you will learn about exposure, histograms and tonal range, understanding and recognising correct exposure using histograms, you will hear about bracketing, focal length and differences between lenses and their impact on depth of field.
In the second class colour temperature and custom white balance and RAW vs Jpeg will be discussed. We will explore when to use manual focus and when (and how better) to use auto focus.
The third session is all about light: how to shape it, how it affects surfaces and its physical properties. This naturally leads to talking about flash and how to control it independently/mix it with daylight.
The course is spread over three sessions in order to give you an opportunity to practice what you have learnt in between the classes. You will be able to try things and ask questions the next class if something had not worked out how you have expected.
