Class Description
This is a one-day 2 1/2-hour class that teaches you the most useful settings in your camera menu. We like to call theses settings “Secondary Functions”. Secondary Functions allow you to tweak your camera’s performance for focusing, fast action & motion, creative portraits and coloration. Knowing these settings helps you optimize your camera to ease frustrations and difficulties…that way you can capture the perfect moment at the right time.

You will also learn about metering; an inquisitive topic on how to control light and exposure. In the portion of the class you will learn about one single button on your camera that will give you consistent exposures with every shot.

The goal of this class is for you to master your camera’s controls so you and your camera can work together in harmony.

Topics Covered:

  • Faster focusing techniques for action/movement
  • Creative focusing for
  • Rapid shooting for sports & action
