Mary Louise Ravese of Bella Vista Photography will lead a two-day workshop for beginner photographers. The workshop is for people who have a digital SLR (DSLR) or mirrorless camera and are interested in learning how to successfully use their camera beyond automatic/program modes. The class will concentrate on the five camera settings: focal length, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. We also will discuss how to interpret the image histogram, a camera feedback mechanism, and use that information to adjust and optimize image exposure for the next shot.
The workshop will include indoor classroom learning and hands-on practice photography in the JC Raulston Arboretum gardens. Participants will receive handouts, home practice exercises and a quick reference sheet. The class is suitable for people 15 and older. Previous experience with the camera is not needed. You’ll need to bring the following items to class.
A DSLR camera or mirrorless camera. The class is best suited for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji and Olympus camera users. Cameras without removable lenses may not be well-suited for this workshop.At least one lens.A memory card.A charged camera battery.Notepaper and a pencil or pen.A bagged lunch or snack.
