Quit Using Your Camera on Program!

Quit Using Your Camera on Program is Steve’s all-time, most popular class as it has helped thousands of photographers gain the upper hand in operating their camera. Once you learn to master your camera, you can create your vision and develop your own style.

This is why Steve begins with teaching the fundamentals – F-stops and Shutter Speeds. Think of it as learning the names of the white keys and the black keys on the piano. Knowing which ones to use is how you are able to play your favorite song – or in this case, take a great photo.

Gaining control over your camera also allows you to gain control over exposures. When using the camera set to “P”, “T” or “A”, the camera has no way to know the photographer’s intent when it comes to exposure. All it can do is average the overall scene.

The problem is, many scenes are simply not “average” – scenes that include a sky or an area with a lot of shade, for example.

This class is all about gaining confidence and mastery over your camera. Quit guessing and take control!

Fundamentals of Flash Photography

Images taken with a flash set to eTTL are a shot in the dark!

Allowing the camera and flash to make exposure decisions will usually wind up costing you a lot more time trying to fix bad images.

Photographers need to have a working understanding of flash photography. If your idea of controlling your flash is to use TTL, then you are simply not in control of your exposure.

Imagine stepping into any location and knowing exactly how to set your flash for a proper exposure.  No chimping, no guessing…only confidence!

By controlling your flash and camera in manual mode, you are able to place the perfect amount of light on the subject and get complete control of the background!

You will learn a ton about flash that you never knew.  Not only will this help you create outstanding images, but it will also help you if you are working on your CPP.
