Thursday, February 8th, Flagpole Photographers had a program and workshop to introduce people new to using cameras with exposure modes to the creative possibilities of purposely manipulating shutter speed, aperture, and overall exposure level. With the help of experienced photographers in the club, these people learned to use aperture priority mode, shutter priority mode, and exposure compensation on their cameras during the preliminary instructional presentation. They were then able to exercise these creative skills at six different work stations where they were able to create images with a deep depths of field, a shallow depths of field, blurred motion, frozen motion, properly exposed dark backgrounds and a properly exposed bright backgrounds. It was great to see members of all levels of experience working together and helping each other throughout the evening.
