Workshop - Camera and Photographic Basics

PHOTOGRAPHY AND CAMERA 101
January 30, 2016 - 9 AM to NOON - NEWMARKET COMMUNITY CENTER HALL #1

What does Auto-ISO actually bring to you?  How can you use Scene modes for creative advantage?  When someone talks about depth of field, does it make sense?  When a challenge suggests motion blur, is it clear to you what that means?  What is a stop, really?  If you would like answers to these kinds of questions and more, well then...

 

This workshop is built for you.  It's not a lecture, it is hands-on so you must bring your camera and your general use lens with you to the workshop.
