Would you like to master all the parameters of your camera so that your creativity wont have limits?

Get away from the simple choice of shooting in automatic mode by mastering when to use the manual settings. In these workshops, you will learn all the techniques that you need to finally get familiar with your camera while developing your visual creativity.

Each session is located in a different area of Paris, so students will not only explore some highlights of the city, but a few “off the beaten path” places as well!

The workshops start with a brief  "lesson of the day".  After this brief, we will explore the area while we practice our photography assignments. A final review of your images will follow in a friendly feedback session where we will discuss and analyze your images.

This in-depth course explores the manual mode factors of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. You'll analyze the interaction among them and learn when to apply the manual mode settings.

Students can expect to:

• Learn about the manual mode settings and get familiar with their camera

• Learn about exposure, ISO, aperture, shutter speeds, and how to tackle challenging light situations

• Learn about composition, colour and black and white techniques

• Develop their visual creativity

• The instructor will guide them and be on hand to answer technical questions

• Get hands-on experience though practical and creative assignments

• Participate in a friendly feedback and review session of the photos taken during the class.

• All sanitary measures will be respected
