About this activity

Switching out of the automatic mode of your reflex camera or bridge is essential to take good pictures.

The boring manuals delivered with these cameras do not give much hope of quickly mastering the camera and its multiple parameters.

This understanding of camera settings and digital language is however essential. Whether we're talking about white balance, sensor sensitivity (ISO), RAW format or exposure compensation, a simple and concise presentation of these terms is essential for ​mastering your camera.

This course will teach you :
- Using the right image format, between JPEG and RAW,
- A clear explanation of file sizes and memory card formatting - Setting a white balance
- Correcting an exposure
- Setting the ISOs
- Reading the histogram of a photo
- Using the P mode

During this course, which is held by videoconference, small practical exercises are planned. Therefore, please make sure that you have your camera loaded and equipped with an empty memory card.

This course lasts between 1h30 and 2h and includes a theoretical explanation and exercises (within the limits of space of the house/apartment).

Possibility to have the class at 10am, 2pm or 6pm. Please message me when you have booked to confirm the timing.

This beginner's course is part of a series of 4 introductory courses for beginners (available by videoconference and face-to-face, in different durations). These courses are offered separately: courses 1, 2, 3 & 4.
