Getting the most out of your camera body

Today’s digital camera bodies have many options for different kinds of photography, (Portrait, nature, sports, etc.). Because the camera bodies seem more complex we tend to use a single or few setting vs understanding the other settings and what advantages they may offer you in the process of capturing images.

For example: Did you know that you can use the Av mode with Auto ISO and the shutter will not go below the 1/f shutter speed for the current lens on your camera? Now not all camera bodies will do this, but you can find out if your camera body has some of these options that can provide you with advantages you may have not been aware.

  • What are some of the best ways to photograph fireworks?
  • If a subject moves from a dark background to a bright background, which setting will allow your exposure to keep the subject properly exposed?
  • If you have situations where quick action is necessary, and making adjustments to your camera body may make you miss the shot, which setting will give you the best option?

This workshop will be interactive.   As the workshop progresses, we will together use the various settings so you can better understand your camera body’s capabilities. After all, you paid a lot of money for your camera body, so let’s be aware of the capabilities and the functions that it offers you.

We will discuss the following camera body shooting modes in this workshop and how to use these modes together:

  1. Shooting Modes
  2. Exposure Adjustments
  3. Metering Modes
  4. Drive Modes
  5. Focusing Modes (Points and Zones)

We will also address the Dust Delete Function and how this will help you to reduce or eliminate dust and oil spots on your camera body’s sensor from your images vs post processing to remove them.

Bring your camera with a wide to normal lens, (24 to 70mm), and your camera’s manual.
