All the details (and there's some spots left!):
If you've ever wondered how to use your fancy schmancy digital SLR camera in a mode other than "auto" but can't get beyond reading the manual, then I've got some good news for you.
I've decided to host a small workshop to share some of the tips and tricks I use in my work and to help folks really get the best use of their SLR cameras. That means (shudder), turning the dial to "manual mode" and learning how to get the correct exposure in camera.
Personally, I'm a hands-on type of learner, so this workshop will primarily be that: hands-on. It will consist of several components. The first will be some basic learning of what determines exposure and how to work with available light. Next we'll be doing a "trash the dress" type of shoot with a couple whose wedding I shot this summer. Lastly, I'll briefly explain some post-processing that I do and answer any questions you may have. It should be a ton of fun and hopefully very helpful to you!
So, the 411:
When: 5pm on September 24, 2009 (that's next Thursday)
Where: Frick Park on the eastside of Pittsburgh. We'll be meeting on the side closest to Braddock Avenue here:
