Getting the best out of your DSLR

May 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Workshop | May 20 | Venkatappa Art Gallery

When you hold a modern day Digital SLR, you hold a really sophisticated equipment capable of performing unimaginable photographic tasks. They also come with bulky manuals that are difficult and time consuming to read and understand. As a result, we end up using it the same way we used its predecessors, the film SLR cameras. If you are in a position to understand the DSLR features and associated menu settings, you can get all those shots that you sadly missed in the past.To help you understand your DSLR better, YPS is happy to bring you this one-day Workshop with a focus on Camera Menu settings.

About the Workshop

Have you experienced loss of focus as that beautiful tiger went behind a tree and re-appeared on the other side while chasing a kill, which made you to miss an opportunity of a rare shot? If you have experienced frustration with your camera in similar situations, then it is time to address them.

Do you know  there are 130+ settings in budget DSLRs and over 170 settings in high end professional DSLRs?  We spend lot of money to buy the latest model of the DSLR from our favourite brand and end up using  just about 4 or 5 functions that it offers. Today’s DSLRs offer very many advanced features in auto-focus, metering, exposure, white balance and creative picture taking that are aimed at helping the photographer to capture great pictures in difficult situations. Without a knowledge of those features, you will continue to miss those shots.

In this workshop you will see live demonstration of,

  • Camera Settings
  • Processing
  • Printing
  • Monitor Calibration
  • Photoshop tuning

and other topics about DSLRs and Mirror-less cameras.
