Next Speedlight Basics Class July 23rd 4PM

_BLR4459-2

Do you need to learn how to use your on-camera flash?  Are you tired of the snapshot look of your pop-up flash and you want to add a speedlight to your bag of tricks? Or maybe you’re shooting weddings or location portraiture using natural light, but want to be prepared to handle adverse lighting conditions?

We’re pleased to announce our Speedlight Basics Class, taught by local commercial photographer Bryan Rierson.  Next class is Sunday July 23rd from 4pm-7pm. Cost is $65 per person, and space is limited so pre-paid registration is encouraged (plus we’ll do a 10% discount if you pre-pay!).  Please call the store (919)836-2222 or come by to register.

This class will be appropriate for all DSLR users, but equipment demos will focus on Nikon and Canon speedlights. Students should bring their camera and speedlight so they can follow along and shoot during demos.  Participants should have a  solid understanding of Photo 101 (ISO, shutter speed, f stop) prior to class. If you need a refresher, please consider our Photo 101 Class.

Next Photo 101 class scheduled for Wednesday June 28th at 7pm

1) Photography 101: Learn about the basics of photography. What is an f/ stop? What is aperture, ISO, and shutter speed and what does it have to do with exposure?  What are the different camera shooting modes and when do I use what? This is a good starting point for those with no experience or those with experience who want to get beyond Program mode and learn to take control of the camera.

2) Image Editing Basics: You got a good shot but the color is wrong and it is underexposed. What now? This class will show you how to use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements to quickly prepare an image for printing. This is not an advanced Photoshop class but some computer experience is helpful.

3) Color Management: “It looks great on my monitor but the print is way off. What’s up?  This class is for those who are interested in getting the color right and keeping it right throughout the process. How to set a custom white balance to maintain good color in-camera. We will learn about generating and using ICC profiles in the editing and print process as well as how to color calibrate your monitor. What is the best color space to use? The end result being what you see on your computer monitor is what you get.

4) Putting It Together: This class is designed to walk through the complete process. Each participant will bring a selected image to class (CD, thumb drive, etc;), and we will walk through the complete process from . You will keep the final generated fine-art print.
