Workshop – Camera Basics – Peter Jones (PJ) and Richard Corkrey ARPS @ Cowdray Hall
Sep 26 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

 

What to bring:

Your camera, camera manual, and tripod

What to expect:

The evening will be mainly centred around DSLR and CSC/Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras. At the last count most members were using Canon or Nikon cameras so there will be plenty of expert help on hand for these. Some members are using Olympus and Panasonic MFT system cameras so there will be some help on hand for these also. If you are not using any of the above we will help you as far as we can so it is important that everyone should bring their camera manuals. The aim of this and future workshops is to get everyone out of the automatic modes. Subjects covered will include using Program, Aperture, Shutter/TV, and Manual Modes, Metering Modes, ISO, Image Stabilisation, and using a tripod/monopod. We will also discuss lenses.
