Mastering Your Camera Missoula, Montana
3/30/2019 - 3/30/2019
Are you looking to gain confidence using your camera in difficult shooting situations? Do you want hands-on time with instructors to ask questions, gain insight and see first-hand how they would handle a shooting situation? Are you looking to make your images and editing more consistent?
Mastering Your Camera is a one-day class built to help improve your confidence and consistency. It starts with a review of basic exposure concepts to ensure all students are at the same level and have a good foundation of F-stops, shutter speeds, and ISOs. Then, the instructor transitions into more advanced exposure concepts like outsmarting the meter and zone system. The day finishes with a field shoot, editing demo, and critique where you can get your questions answered and learn ways to improve your images.
We limit the class size to 20 students and provide qualified teaching assistants and administrators to ensure the teacher-to-student ratio remains better than 1:10. If you have questions, don’t worry, we got you!
