Events - Workshops - MW_JC - Photography Workshop with Jim Craigmyle

The purpose of this workshop is to help participants understand the main elements of making a great photograph.

Participants will learn the three fundamental settings (ISO, aperture, and shutter speed) to make a high quality image.

- The ISO rating determines the speed of the sensor and the amount of “noise” in an image
- Aperture creates the depth of field in an image
- Shutter speed determines how motion is captured in an image
When using these three settings, one of them often becomes the most important, while the others are adjusted to achieve the optimal exposure. From this fundamental understanding, we will explore different ways to create more interesting and original images.

Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm, with open Q & A until 12:30

Cost: $65 / person, cost includes course, parking and day pass to Scanlon Creek to explore the park after the class. Portion of the proceeds to support the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation.
