Understanding Manual Exposure

  • Pikes Peak Library 21C, Room Studio21C 1175 Chapel Hills Drive Colorado Springs, CO, 80920 United States (map)

Simone Severo will teach a class for DSLR camera users to help you to understand how your camera "thinks", when it is right, when it is wrong, and how to take control over it. She will cover the exposure triangle, and talk about setting ISO, choosing shutter speeds, changing apertures and how they relate to each other.

This class will teach you how to use your DSLR camera in manual mode.

Cost is $40 per person

Class is from 10:30am to 1:00pm

Where: Pikes Peak Library District - Library 21C, Room Studio 21C

1175 Chapel Hills Drive

Colorado Springs, CO, 80920


• Understanding the light meter

• Understanding Depth of field

• Controlling light

• What is overexposure 

• What is underexposure

• What is aperture

• What is shutter speed

• What is ISO

• Putting the three together

If you know nothing about photography, have a DSLR camera, and are willing to invest some time to learn how to take control over your camera, this is a class for you.

If you know how to use your camera, but would like to attend one more time to a basic class on understanding exposure to refresh your knowledge, this is also a class for you.

If you are bored to death, have nothing else to do, feels like you are an expert and would like to attend, you are more than welcome. You can help to answer questions.

Please bring your DSLR camera.

This is a very technical class and I will talk all about those numbers in your viewfinder (ISO, shutter speed, aperture).

My goal is to give you the chance to understand and relate to those numbers in your camera so you know when you need to change them in your camera and WHY.
