About the Workshop
Modern DSLR cameras are capable of producing
excellent images but still need help from photographers knowledgeable
in exposure theory. Getting the exposure right is one way to elevate the
quality of your work. Getting the exposure right quickly in the field
should be every photographers goal!
This one day in depth workshop will cover
exposure theory and practice. This is geared towards people of all
skill levels. The idea is to cover exposure theory in detail and to spend
time discussing how to apply exposure theory to real world situations.
I have put together a Power point presentation
as an aid in explaining theory and we will spend a some time doing
hands on and discussing how to handle real world situations.
1 - Definitions of photographic terms
- fstop, EV, ISO, saturation, blow out, etc.
2 - History of exposure theory
