Mississauga CC Workshop

Saturday October 20th, from 9am until noon.
Mississauga Camera Club is having a workshop with Chris Alexander at the Mississauga Senior’s Center, 1389 Cawthra Rd, Mississauga, just south of the QEW.
Our building is next to the Carmen Corbasson Community Center, towards the east end of the parking lot

Aperture, Shutter and ISO: Manipulating the Three

A workshop exploring the interrelationship between Aperture, Shutter, and ISO.
By working in Manual Mode rather than Automatic or Priority Modes you will discover how to manipulate them as a group and achieve a properly exposed image based on the type of picture you want to take.
You will learn how to decide which of the 3 elements takes priority while adjusting the others to maintain your required exposure and exercise creativity for your final result.
Attendees should bring their camera and know how to set manual mode and how to change aperture, shutter speed and ISO from the camera operating manual. It is important that you should familiarize yourself with the manual operation of your particular camera model and be able to individually set the Aperture, Shutter and ISO.
