Fresh Focus [Beyond the Basics]

Renee Giugliano Photography, Oak Harbor, WA Photographer specializing in Pregnancy, Newborn & Children
“Beyond the Basics” is a photography workshop that teaches participants how to move off “auto” and “semi-auto” modes of their DSLR so they can begin to master exposure and shooting in manual modes. It focuses on all aspects of the exposure triangle and covers important exposure concepts such as metering and understanding the histogram. Participants will walk away with a presentation manual that includes diagrams and examples that are thoughtfuly laid out and easy to replicate for learning assignments.

Topics include:

  • Must-Reads in Your Camera Manual
  • In Camera Shooting Settings
  • Exposure (10 subtopics within)
  • Other Camera Settings
  • and more

This workshop is a follow up to our “Fresh Focus [Parent Workshop]”, an introductory workshop that covers composition, perspective, and other photography basics along with tips and tricks for taking pics of your kids at different ages. You are not required to take the Parent Workshop in order to participate in “Beyond the Basics” but it is highly recommended since we do an overview of the Parent Workshop.
