Just because there is enough light in a room or outside to take a photo, doesn’t mean that it’s great light…. 

A powerful skill at your fingertips 

Advanced and professional photographers do not generally use any of the semi-automatic modes (Aperture, Shutter Speed priority etc.) when shooting in a studio environment. This course will demonstrate why, and show you just how easy it is to use Manual modes for consistent exposures and how it can aid the learning process.
