    Photo Tour: F-Stops and Shutter Speeds

    (6)
    Anyone can point a camera and press a button. What separates photographers who know what they're doing from those who don't is the knowledge of how to use your camera to its fullest extent! This class will demystify the subtle abbreviations you will find on your camera. After this class, you'll be able to differentiate settings from "Auto" and "P" to "Av" and "Tv." As you learn these basic operations, you'll start to unlock the knowledge of how professionals make that closeup look super sharp, but always have the perfectly blurred background. This is a great way to build your own skills on photo composition, mode, speed and exposure, and also teach you how to use your camera to its fullest capacity.
