    PPA Members:


    Sometimes, it’s easy to forget the technical aspects of photography and just focus on the art. But, there are a lot of systematic elements that go into capturing the right picture, especially with lighting and exposure. It’s not always sexy, but it IS essential!

    In this class, Instructor Steve Kozak walks you through the ins and outs of creating the perfect exposure so that you can have perfect pictures!

    Get a little technical as you discuss metering, how it works and how to calibrate your camera. Examine the difference between reflected and incident meter readings. Understand your histogram and its limitations. Not exactly coffee table conversation, but it’ll make you an awesome photographer!

    Steve also discusses manual versus auto exposures, color and the challenges of white balance. This class presents a ton of technical info in an easy-to-understand, straightforward manner – and then Steve puts it all into practice with a live model. Once you’ve mastered the practical side, you’ll find you have more control over your creativity. So, register today!
