TPPA invites you to join Steve Kozak for two outstanding photography classes on March 11 and 12.

Steve will present, “Quit Using Your Camera on Program!” on Saturday and “Fundamentals of Flash Photography” on Sunday.

These classes will help you get the most out of your camera and your flash by learning to use both in manual mode.  This is a weekend that you don’t want to miss.

You can register for the classes separately or bundle them together and SAVE.

The cost for TPPA Members is only $158 for both classes! You save $20!

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!
