When I first started photography, I was clueless and frustrated. I spent over a year or more
struggling in manual, believing that was how "real" photographers shot - but it isn't. It seemed like
everyone else knew what they were doing; like they knew the "divine" settings; but I didn't.
I was overwhelmed by over-technical presentations, and didn't dare ask advanced photographers
questions; thinking it was "privileged" information. When I finally began to make progress, I found
myself saying, "I wish I had know this when I started."
So, I decided to write a workshop for beginners to give them a "wide-angle" view of photography from
turning on the camera to shooting, editing, framing, fun with photos, and lots of cool tips in between.
Introduction; camera, lenses, equipment; light; exposure; exposure compensation; how to get sharp images; juggling aperture, shutter, ISO; elements of composition; flash, strobe, and fill flash; special settings like waterfalls, fireworks, and bokeh; portraits and landscapes tips; RAW vs JPEG files; organizing photos; basic processing /editing & software; framing; slide shows & cards; informative websites; legal aspects; fun with photos (including special effects and putting your photo on a magazine cover, etc.
