Module 2 - Depth of Field "DOF"
This is one of those terms that you are likely to hear quite a lot of and will work with regularly in your photography. Playing with depth of field and the ability to control depth in your images will become an important part of your photography.
Module 3 - Exposure
When we talk about “exposure,” the simple meaning is how to brighten or darken a photo. It seems like it should be simple to capture photos that are correctly exposed, but in reality it can be quite tricky. Although exposure can be adjusted to some extent in post processing there is some reduction of image quality and general overall look. We will learn how to master this right in the camera. Words like ISO, F stop and shutter speed will not frighten or confuse you anymore.
Module 4 - Focusing
Knowing when to use continuous or single focusing mode is the first step of mastering autofocus. Modern cameras have advanced focusing mechanisms, that can capture moving objects, but 100% accuracy is hard to achieve. We will learn how to increase hit rate and focus exactly where we want.
Module 5 - The Histogram
Histogram is a graphic representation of our image. It can be a scary term, but don't worry we will learn how to read it. Learning how to read Histogram is crucial to understanding the exposure of the image even if we have doubts while looking at our camera display.
