Workshop Preparation

Preparing For Your Photography Workshop

You should know how find and change certain settings on your camera. You don’t have to understand what they do or how they work but it will help you during the workshop if you can find them quickly.

We get that you don’t understand all these things, that’s why you are taking the class. Your manual is great in helping you access information but isn’t a great teacher, that’s what this workshop is for.

You should know how to access these settings on your camera.

ISO Settings

Shutter Speed Settings

Aperture or F-Stop Settings

Auto Focus Settings

White Balance Settings


Things you need.

Camera with a fully charged battery

Lens or Lenses

Pen and Paper

Your Camera’s Manual

Any Questions You Have

Check in at least 20 minutes before the workshop starts.

Know matter what camera you have, even if it is not a DSLR with manual settings you will have a better understanding of photography and how cameras work. It may also give you a good idea of what you want out of your next camera.

All of this preparation is meant to help you get the most out of your workshop. Camera manuals are always good things to have with you. With today’s cameras there are so many settings as well as bells and whistles that it just makes good sense to be able to refer to it. I’ve been a photographer for over 20 years and still keep my camera’s manual in my camera bag in case I want to use a feature that I don’t normally use.
