Overview

The Next step (Exposure Value & Advanced Aperture and Shutter speed)

Dive deeper into your photographic journey in this second-level photography class.


Designed for photographers who have taken Photography 101 or who have sufficient understanding of basic aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings.

In Photography 201, take your basic understanding of exposure to new heights with more practical tips and techniques, such as balancing exposure values, the Rule of Thirds, and how to set up your autofocus. Photography is a learned skill, and the next step on your photographic journey starts with Photography 201

This class is the second of the three, (Photo 101, Photo 201 and Photo 301) classes that builds upon Brian’s “Dashboard” approach to photography. In short, the Dashboard approach is one that allows the student to learn at their own pace.

For each of these classes, Brian will provide the photographic concept as well as a general overview of where to look on their camera to apply the concepts presented. In the end, the photography student, like a good pilot viewing their dashboard, will be able to look at their menu and change the setting to achieve the desired exposures and better pictures.

This class will feature a 2-hour lecture followed by 30 minutes of live Q&A with the instructor.

This virtual Class is recorded for attendees to review for up to 7 days after the event.


We recommended this class be taken after Photography 101, but it is not limited to those who have taken the prior class.
