Beginners Workshop 2.0

  • UNF Nature Trail 1 University of North Fl Drive Jacksonville, FL, 32224 United States (map)


Beginners Workshop 2 - $50 per person.

Buying someone a new DSLR camera for Christmas? Or perhaps thinking of getting one yourself? Maybe you've owned one for a while but have not yet dared to go beyond the Auto Mode. This workshop is for you! Come spend a couple of hours with Adam and learn the essentials of how to unlock your camera's potential!

*This workshop is on a first-come-first-serve basis and space is limited.

Recommended Audience:

  • Those fairly new to DSLR shooting who want to learn more. If you've been shooting for a long time you're welcome to come but if you're looking for guidance on advanced shooting techniques, I will be offering a course for that at a future date.

What's Covered in the Beginners Workshop:

  • All of the different modes on a DSLR camera, what they do and which ones you should be using as a beginner. (Manual mode may not always best.)
  • How to get a proper exposure by using the camera's shutter speed, aperture (f/stop) and light sensitivity (ISO). They're not as intimidating as you think. :)
  • What is "depth of field" and how to start using it to make your portraits pop.
  • How different light scenarios effect a photo and how to choose the best lighting for your photograph.
  • RAW formart vs JPG formart and why shooting in RAW is virtually a must.
  • Recommendations on cost friendly equipment you can get to make your images instantly look more professional.
  • Q&A for anything and everything you would want to ask. This will be a very interactive and open workshop.

What's NOT Covered in the Beginners Workshop:

  • Demonstrations on post processing or how to edit your photos. This will be an outdoor active participation class but unfortunately computers won't be going with us. During the event I will be happy to answer any editing technique questions you may have though.
  • Off camera flash.
  • Landscape photography techniques will not be a focus of this workshop however I will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding shooting scenery.

What You Need to Participate:

  • Just bring your camera and at least one lens. This will be an active participation workshop so you can practice as it moves along.
  • As mentioned earlier, this class will not cover editing so you can leave laptops behind.
