Leave Auto Behind and Take Control of Any Camera – ZOOM Workshop

This 3 hour workshop will be conducted over Zoom with live on-screen video and graphics in an interactive webinar format. The instructor will explain and demonstrate the most rapid and effective ways participants can improve their photography from “making snapshots” to “creating art” with images that ‘WOW ’ viewers! Going beyond a camera store class, participants in this workshop will learn how to leave “Auto” behind and take control of any camera from phones to Pro-level equipment.  The material will include how to exploit: composition; exposure; lighting values; viewer psychology; camera settings; and accessories to better express the photographer’s own creativity by telling stories through emotionally compelling imagery. The material will be customized in real-time to address participant interests in: scenic/travel; wildlife; candid/portraiture; sports; macro; abstract; and/or documentary photography.
Participants will use their own camera equipment at home in real-time for practice in learning non-“auto” settings and features. In advance of the class, it is suggested that participants locate/acquire the instruction manual for their camera model (which can be readily “Googled” and downloaded as a PDF from a number of sites).  Participants will want to have their camera manuals with them at home as they carry-out the instructor guided exercises.
