Course Details

This three-week course will cover the basics of exposure, white balance, and metering to give you the skills to move out of auto mode and confidently start shooting consistently in manual mode. We'll cover the decision-making process you need to choose your own settings, and how to start taking creative control of your shot.

This course is geared to the "late beginning" photographer.  Once you have become familiar with your camera, and you feel ready to take the steps to start shooting in manual mode rather than auto settings.  

You will need a DSLR or mirrorless camera with manual mode.
