Aperture / F-Stops

Shutter Speed – to show the passage in time on your photos. Those awesome car trail photos? Flowing waterfalls? People frozen mid-jump? We’ll show you exactly how to capture all of them.

White Balance – to make sure the colors in your photos look great. Once you master white balance, the colors in your photos will always ‘pop’.

ISO – squeezes the most light out of your camera. Ever take blurry photos of people indoors or dimly lit restaurants? ISO fixes this and much more. We’ll cover the fastest way to use ISO. This is a MUST LEARN if you photograph kids because they move so fast!

Composition – how you lay out a scene before you shoot it. I’ll show you the massive shortcut that makes every photo dramatic to viewers and automatic so you don’t even have to think about it.
