Being able to obtain the best exposure is fundamental to good photography. It allows maximum camera and file qualities, and can save significant post capture time.
So why not have crash course in understanding metering and the resulting exposure, from an industry respected and experienced photographer. Automation, although good, is not perfect.
John Clements ‘Shoot It Like A Pro’
- Metering, Exposure & Colour Workshop.
No matter if you take pictures purely for pleasure or are a pro, unless you understand certain skills things will only frustrate, cost time and money.
At the heart of every genre, from family snaps, shooting landscapes to commercial advertising photography, getting metering, exposure and colour recorded to your requirements, are a must.
But each takes time to master, understand and implement.
And different subjects, available time and location can need plan ‘b’.
So who better to lead you through the maze of how, why and when with each aspect than John?
A one stop workshop to see clearly the main choices and skills needed to implement them.
With practical sessions and clear demonstrations throughout, he combines his respected technical skills that have been used by some of the biggest imaging companies, with his decades of pro shooting experience for his clients.
With a reputation for demystifying even the most complex aspects John will guide step-by-step in an easy to follow way.
From the very basics by way of an introduction or a reminder, through to high level out of camera results and workflow.
A must for anyone who wants a solid grounding not just now but for the future of their picture taking.
This day offers a unique ‘crash course’ for those who want to maximise what they can achieve in minimum time.
