What will you learn? - You will learn about the three elements that contribute to a photograph: Aperture, Shutter and ISO, and how these elements affect your shots. - You will learn about the different settings of your DSLR, (Digital Single Lens Reflex), camera. You will also learn about what settings will produce the best results given different scenarios. - You will learn focussing tips and tricks, such as back button focussing and how to correctly hold your camera. - You will learn about the file formats that your camera utilizes when saving pictures: RAW vs. JPEG, and the differences between them. - You will get “real-world” hands on shooting experience when we take a 45 minute nature/wildlife walk around my property. Different species that I have photographed on my property, (depending on the season), include: - Black Capped Chickadees - Various Woodpecker species - Cedar and Bohemian Waxwings - Nuthatches - Bald Eagles - Various Warblers - Red Fox - Deer - Other wildlife This course is designed for the beginner/intermediate/budding photographer, or anyone who would like to learn how to take better pictures.
