About this activity

The photographer's reading of light is a key notion that allows for choices in terms of results​; it enables the photographer to express his or her creativity in the same way as depth of field and shutter speed.

Different modes of light measurement are available on digital cameras (matrix, spot or center-weighted modes) and this course offers you the opportunity to master them.

Focus (auto and manual) will also be on the agenda of this course. ​You will learn how to quickly and accurately "focus" on your subject, using the so-called collimators, as well as the different autofocus modes.

In short, this course will teach you how to :
- Measure light using the different spot, matrix or center-weighted modes
- How to take successful backlight photos
- Focusing wisely using the different collimators and AF modes
- Work on your framing from the moment you take the shot

During this course, which is held by videoconference, small practical exercises are of course planned. In​ this respect, please make sure that you have your device loaded and equipped with an empty image 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.
