I took a Basic Photography course at 50 Feasts over the weekend. I figured since I got a Sony NEX-5N I should learn how to shoot in manual mode. It’s a hybrid after all, something between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR. I’ve always been the “Intelligent Auto” girl so pretty much all throughout my blogging career I’ve been shooting in that particular Sony mode. :p
Our teacher was professional photographer Mylene Chung. Mylene contributes to publications like Yummy Magazine and Reader’s Digest. Thanks to her I now know what ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and white balance are plus I know how to adjust everything manually so I can customize my settings depending on the situation. I actually shot that photo up there in full manual mode. :p
This is my classmate Honey during a shooting exercise. She’s a cake artist and she’s sooooo good at designing cakes! Check out her works at http://www.facebook.com/sugarushcakes.
What do you know, we were also taught light painting! Of course the optimal room condition is pitch black in terms of darkness but since we were taking the class in the afternoon we couldn’t really make it so.
Basic Photography at 50 Feasts costs P4,900 per person. Check out http://www.50feasts.com for available schedules and discount schemes. There are other courses aside from Basic Photography too.
I’m so proud of my Sony NEX-5N which went head-to-head with various DSLR cams. Whatever a DSLR can do, it can do… better (better for me anyway since I don’t have the dedication needed to get a DSLR)! :p
