Photography 101 – Getting Off Auto
About the Program
During this 4 session program (over 4 weeks, on Saturdays), participants will gain a higher comfort level with their camera and its manual settings in order to create unique works of art through photography. The program will focus on shutter speeds, f-stops, ISO’s, composition and lighting while shooting indoors with some outdoor shooting on Jan 31 (weather permitting).
Leading the program is David Allen.
David ran a professional studio for over 30 years and has photographed just about everything. David has taught photography through Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation as well as Art Works Art School. David has always been fascinated by the visual transformations brought about by the extremes of temperature and seasonal changes in High Park, and began shooting the park in 2005.

What to bring to the first session
While a DSLR camera is preferred, if you don’t have one, you can use your regular point and shoot camera.
For those bringing a regular point and shoot camera, please bring the manual as they all have different settings and you will be expected to have some familiarity with the workings of your particular camera.
Please note: Because each session builds on the previous, we highly recommend that you attend all 4 sessions.
