This advanced class is for those who have cameras with interchangeable lens, or those with a camera that has settings or a dial displaying a non-green “A” or “Av” setting. We’ll cover using white balance settings for creative control, use of histograms, bracketing exposures for the best image tones, using exposure compensation controls, and balancing your pop up flash outdoors with natural light. For cameras with built in pop up flashes we’ll cover uses, and how to balance your flash with the outdoor or ambient natural light to create photos that display background details while lighting up your subject for pleasing skin tones. We’ll hike around Portsmouth center to Prescott Park. Rain Date, Sunday 6/3/18.

*Meeting on site. We’ll be meeting at the market square corner in Portsmouth at 8:30 in front of the bakery where the motorcycles park in the summer. I’ll have on a leather jacket and white cap.
