Photography Workshop Review Part 5

Photography Workshops Logo

This week I learned about Light Metering and Flash also the Review Chapter from EasyPhotoClass.


Light meter buttonLight Metering.  WOW did I ever need this chapter and once again I found a button on my camera that I didn't know what it was for. Do you have this button?  Do you know what it's for??  


Light Metering opens up a whole new way to shoot photos for me!!  No more photo's that are too dark or all washed out. 


I've also learned the importance of a gray card!!  It's next on the list of 'must haves' for my camera!!  I can't believe the difference a gray card can make!!  Now you can get an expensive light meter for a couple of hundred dollars or a $20-$30 gray card.... guess which one I'm opting for??

Okay I have to share some of my 'homework' pictures.  I didn't change the lighting in the room.  I didn't move from my seat.  I only adjusted my camera settings with this weeks lessons.

I am really learning so much with this class!  I have to say I love the fact that I am learning on my schedule.  My pace.  My LIFE!!  I also love the fact that I can review any part of the class just by turning on my computer.
So again.... if you are a new camera owner or a pro that needs some reminders..... please check out Photography Workshops.

Next week I'm learning about Lens Care, Memory Cards, Lens Visor and a general wrap up.

  1. I can tell a difference in your photos even online. Your photo after taking the class is so much clearer. I am very anxious to learn about photography and using the proper settings on my camera. I've been wanting to take some classes, but never have gotten around to it, so the photo class offered in another of your postings would be perfect for me. Thanks.
