DAY 1
We start the day helping you to find the important camera controls and settings  and guide you through the basic way in which a digital SLR or mirrorless camera works and the effects achievable when selecting these settings and not allowing the camera, on automatic mode to choose them for you.  We will concentrate on the affect the shutter speed has on our images today and will also look at exposure compensation, metering and ISO settings. The day will be equally split with time in the classroom and taking images out on location in Chichester  Harbour. At the ned of the day we will return to our classroom and review some of the images that you have captured during the day.

By the end of the day you will be able to identify and operate the important camera controls and have a good understanding of how to both freeze and show movement by proper control of the shutter speed. You will also have a good understanding of the camera metering system and be able to select the correct metering modes, white balance and and be aware of how to use ISO for the images you wish to capture.

 

DAY 2
We will begin the day re-capping on the previous days learning. We will then guide you through how the aperture affects our images in relation to depth of field. The remainder of the day will be spent out on location at East Head in the sand dunes and close to the Harbour near Itchenor.
