Shooting Strategies with George Simian – Live Online

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ticket Registration

Join us in our seminar and you will never again wonder what settings to use on your camera, and in what order to make your decisions!

Are you getting the best possible images from your state-of-the-art camera? Are you wondering what settings to use – and how to choose? You need to exercise some discipline – to get everything right – and in this seminar we’ll go over all the issues.

Key is stabilizing the camera – with high shutter speeds, or a tripod. Triggering the shutter requires a gentle touch, or a remote when on a tripod. Deciding on the correct exposure requires some testing, and attention paid to critical highlight rendering. Trading off between aperture and ISO, while maximizing the shutter speed, is also a consideration. Focus is still an issue, even with mirrorless cameras – but with DSLRs it is critical that you learn about AutoFocus Fine Tune.

What decisions should you make about White Balance? And what about filters? And how do you think differently in low light, vs bright light – or when capturing action vs a portrait?

Join us in our seminar on the Zoom platform where all these points will be addressed and illustrated – you’ll never again wonder what settings to use on your camera, and in what order to make your decisions!
