Break away from relying on your camera’s automatic settings and begin to manually control each variable that makes a photograph “work” including the ISO, the shutter speed, and the aperture. Along with learning how to manually control your camera, you will learn techniques on how to organize and edit your photos with Adobe Bridge and Photoshop. This course will consist of online presentations on how to control your camera manually, along with virtual individual meetings, and dedicated time to practice shooting with instructor guidance.
