Gain a thorough understanding of how exposure affects the outcome of your images in a lecture and walking tour exploring exposure value. Read a summary on our website here.


What you’ll Learn

Exposure values are arbitrary numbers that describe combinations of aperture sizes and shutter speeds that create photos of the same luminance based on a given ISO sensitivity. Almost all creative control in photography stems from varying the individual elements in this triangle, so understanding how to shift settings within the same exposure value is critical to advancing beyond Auto mode.

Following the classroom instruction on EV, the group will take a walk or carpool to a designated location for an on-site group photo shoot.

Although all camera settings with the same exposure value nominally give the same exposure, they may not necessarily give the same picture.


The exposure time “shutter speed” determines the amount of motion, or blur.

The relative “aperture”, opening of the lens, determines the depth of field; that is, the amount of foreground or background that is in focus in addition to the subject.

The light sensitive film or image sensor in a digital camera may exhibit reciprocity failure; a point in the light necessary to produce a good exposure is no longer related with previous levels of exposure



This is a fundamental building block program intended for the DSLR owner who is looking to advance from Auto or Program modes in the camera to mastering and controlling exposure.  


 

What you’ll Need


A D-SLR or camera that allows you to manually adjust Aperture, Shutter Speed and Focus. Tripod and Cable Release or Automatic Timer are suggested.

Student Testimonials

“I greatly enjoyed getting out there with you. Up until now I've been a shoot first, correct later kind of photographer, but getting out there with you is helping and encouraging me to be a better photographer with a lot less post processing. Best class experience yet, thank you!"
