Digital Photography: The Pillars of Technical Photography

Quit the automatic mode of your digital camera. Learn the pillars of technical photography (speed, aperture, sensibility) and understand these concepts and be able to choose the best setting for the image you desire. Be able to decide which element of the image is clear or blur and finally understand the concept of depth of field. Be able to stop a movement or on the contrary play with the movement of water, people or light. The base of composition will be address. Learn how to obtain an image in any situation. The class would be an alternating between explanation and immediate implementation.

Participants must bring their own camera with manual settings. If you do not have a camera, Kala has a limited supply and can lend a camera for the duration of the workshop. Please contact classes@kala.org in advance to ensure availability.
