Learn how the right lens for your subject matter makes a world of difference in obtaining the perfect photo. We will discuss all aspects from quality, focal length, prime vs. zoom, specialty lenses, and depth of field control when making your decision.
File Format (JPEG vs. RAW)
If you are unfamiliar with the concepts behind shooting in RAW vs. JPEG, you are not alone. It can be a confusing topic, and that is why we think it is important to go over and discuss which one is best for which circumstances, along with the pros and cons of each. By the end of the session you'll be able to decide which format works best for your shooting style.
Most newer model cameras have a built-in video function. The more recent DSLR’s and MSLR’s record 1080P and 4K. While most of the principles of photography remain the same (Aperture and ISO) the shutter speed is now converted to frame rate. Because of the rolling shutter (to create a moving image = video) the shutter speed is now half of the original value 1/50 = 24 frame rate, 1/60 = 30 frame rate etc.
