Skill Level: This workshop is for photographers who have an understanding of the following:

  • Controlling exposure using a combination of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO
  • Controlling their camera/equipment (you will be working in the dark with limited additional lighting)
  • Working in manual mode

For beginners, we recommend taking Matt's Beginner Photography Workshop scheduled on July 8th, 2023.
