More about the Master Your Camera F.A.S.T. photography workshop
You see a person, animal/bird, or landscape, etc. and think to yourself, this will make a great picture!
So you pick up your DSLR, mirrorless, or bridge camera, point towards the subject and shoot. But you are not satisfied with the result. Your picture is either too dark (underexposed), too bright (overexposed), out of focus, or shaky, etc.
You abandon your fancy camera and go back to clicking photos with your smartphone.
Has this ever happened to you?
We make pictures in our mind before we make them in the camera. Wouldn't it be great if our camera could read our mind and replicate the images in it? It cannot yet.
But we can learn how to re-create the images in our mind with a camera. We can learn how to use the camera in the Manual-mode and that's what this workshop is about.
The manual-mode gives us complete mastery over our camera. So no more underexposed, overexposed, out of focus, and shaky photos!
Have you ever thought to yourself, "I'd like my subject to be sharp, but the background should be out of focus"? That's the depth of field which according to me is the most important facet of photography. You will learn how to do this.
We follow an all-practical approach. So throughout the day, you will be using your camera, taking pictures and seeing results.
