Do you have a digital camera, love taking pictures but don’t understand f-stops, shutter speed and ISO? Join Onne’s workshop “Photography 101” and learn the basics. Onne has been teaching this class for several years to sold out audiences in the Newport area and now is bringing his expertise to Nantucket Onne explains in a clear, concise and humorous way how to use your DSLR by showing examples of photographs, sketches and diagrams. At the end of the first class, you will go from being a fully automatic (bozo mode) shooter to semi-automatic or manual mode and will be able to understand what that shutterbug jargon really means.
The first class is about basic camera controls. We will discuss exposure, aperture, ISO and how to set up your camera correctly, the importance of the histogram plus the benefits of shooting in RAW format not JPEG.
The second class is covers workflow and post production. Onne will demonstrate how to download your files from the camera and organize them in a simple method and how to process the files in Lightroom
The second class encompasses the computer end of digital photography also known as post production. Onne will explain the two programs he uses to organize and edit his images, Photo Mechanic and Adobe Lightroom. After the first class, you will know how to set up your camera and shoot great images. It is then time to learn how to download the images from your camera card on to your computer and how to “tweak” them to your liking. Firstly, we work in the browser, Photo Mechanic, to download, organize and renumber the images and make sequential folders. The conversion from a raw file to a jpeg takes place in Adobe Lightroom and where the adjustments like color balance, tone, sharpness crop and are made.
Every click of Onne’s post production workflow is clearly explained during the class and illustrated via a PowerPoint presentation. You can follow along with a downloadable PDF which enables you to follow along during the class and to refer to later. Once registered for the class, you will receive a link to the PDF’s of both class #1 and #2. Please download both Photo Mechanic and Adobe Lightroom before class – both programs have 30-day trial versions.
The third class will include a critique of the students’ work and cover any questions regarding composition, camera, or workflow.
After each class, we will have a one-hour break, then the students and Onne will head out to a specific location on the island to capture the magic evening light and have to opportunity to practice what you’ve learned and create real masterpieces!
Onne will shoot along with you and discuss his process as he photographs. He will give each student individual attention and answer your camera setting and composition questions. Onne will offer help with your camera gear and will also lend his own Canon bodies and Canon RF lenses for you to try. If you are in the market for a new camera and/or lens Onne can let you know what the affordable options are. He will answer all questions and offer his tips and tricks of the trade!
This class is aimed at anyone who wants to learn the basics of digital photography or the advanced amateur that wants to polish up on his/her photo skills and get to the next level with their photography. This is not an iPhone or point and shoot photo class.
