About this activity

Learning to use the manual mode of your reflex or bridge camera is an important step towards taking better pictures. Operating manuals provided with the camera are monotonous and do not really show all there is to know about the many buttons and parameters that are available.

About your Mentor
Born in Brazil and now based in Helsinki, Finland, photographer Ricardo Santos has been developing hybrid photography for the past few years; shooting with film, developing and scanning the negatives for digital editing.

The first contact with photography came at a very early age, in 1984, when his dad taught him how to look through the view glass of a Rolleiflex. It wasn’t until Ricardo’s first son was born, that he made the decision of getting a new DSLR camera to record the family memories. After that photography became a serious hobby and it didn’t take long until he decided to explore film photography and the analog world.

CLASS NO 1: CAMERA SETTINGS (BEGINNER LEVEL)
Learning to use the manual mode of your reflex or bridge camera is an important step towards taking better pictures.

Operating manuals provided with the camera are monotonous and do not really show all there is to know about the many buttons and parameters available.

Understanding the parameters of the camera and knowing digital photography vocabulary is the first key step. White balance, sensor sensitivity (ISO), RAW format and exposure correction are only examples of terms that will be presented in a clear and concise way during the course.

This workshop will teach you how to:

- Use the right image format between JPEG and RAW
- Adjust the white balance
- Correct the exposure
- Set the ISO on the camera
- Read a histogram
- Use the “P” shooting mode
