your full potential as a photographer
You've finally purchased that fancy digital SLR camera and have started shooting pictures in auto mode. You've probably been amazed at the difference in quality, speed, and clarity in comparison to that old point-and-shoot, right? Well, you aint seen nothin' yet! If you haven't taken your DSLR camera out of auto mode, then this class is for you. There's SO much more you can do with your camera, so get ready to be amazed!
In this 8-week class, you'll learn how to reach your full potential in digital SLR photography—exploring what you can do in program, aperture-priority, shutter-priority, and other creative modes. You'll learn exactly what ISO, shutter speed, and aperture mean individually and how they work together to create that perfect photo. You'll delve into white balance settings and focus modes, and you'll learn more about camera equipment, accessories, and lenses. You'll get a refresher on some basic (but important!) composition tips and discover fun and amazing photo techniques that Elisha has amassed throughout her own learning adventures.
New this Session!
Your instructor, Elisha Snow, has recruited talented photographer Heather Bird to bring additional expertise and a new perspective to Mastering Manual Mode! Via a live classroom blog, Heather will share her take on each week's principles, sharing beautiful photographic examples of her own in real time. She'll also participate on the gallery and message boards and assist with photo critiques. As a student, you can look forward to one personalized critique from Heather and one from Elisha.
Are you ready? Because by the time you're done with this class you are going to "get it." And "getting it" is a great feeling! Once you've completed this class, you'll never go back to auto mode again. You're not just taking a picture—you're creating a memory.
