Take Your Camera Off Auto Mode! Workshop

Most people think that by just spending a lot of money on a DSLR camera, it will magically take better photos than their point-and-shoot did. The only problem is the operator is more important than the camera. You can leave your camera on Auto mode and take OK photos (and every now and then, a great one), but to truly take consistently great photos, you need to take your camera off auto mode! Our workshops will teach you how. In Person Workshops resume Spring 2021.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and anyone that uses program mode at all. You will learn all of the variables of exposure and how to put them together to create your image.
