Understanding Exposure For Raw Image Capture

Join me online to learn how to properly measure and set exposure for RAW images.

Online Class Thursday, May 14th

When: Thursday, May 14th 3-4:30pm US Eastern Time

By understanding how your digital camera sensor records data, you’ll get a complete understanding of why the “correct” exposure doesn’t always match what the histogram says. From there, I’ll teach you some useful ways of setting up your camera to record the best possible exposure and then make the necessary adjustments to that image in post-processing using Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop.

  • Camera settings
  • Understanding the histogram
  • Exposure techniques
  • Adjusting RAW images
  • Live Online Learning Event
  • You will be able to ask questions during the class
  • All registered participants receive a video replay of the class
