The second workshop in The Aperture Club’s comprehensive Fundamentals of Photography course will expand your understanding of manual mode and explain the relationship between aperture, shutter and ISO. Plus, it’ll be fun!
Mastering Manual Mode is the next step in taking control of your camera so you can make informed decisions about your photography’s style and direction.
We’ll look at white balance metering and exposure compensation; how depth of field and understanding light can balance technical mastery with creative mindfulness; and we will explore methods professional photographers use to make informed creative decisions.
You’ll learn how professionals create expressive images, and practise using the characteristics of light to create mood and emotion in your final images.
You’ll come away with wonderful new skills that boost your technical and creative confidence.
