During the Take Your Camera Off Program Mode! workshop, students learn how to use their DSLRs in manual mode. The course covers basic image composition as well as manipulation of aperture, ISO, shutter speed, and other variables. Students can bring their lenses, memory card, and a charged battery, or they can borrow a Nikon or Canon to play around with during the hands-on class.
Okello Dunkley designs his workshops for students who have just bought or are thinking of buying a DLSR camera but are mystified by its myriad gadgets and gizmos. The accessible nature of these classes has helped Dunkley spread them into nearly a dozen locations across the Midwest and east coast, where students as young as 12 learn how to take a digital camera off automatic mode and manually manipulate ISO light sensors and aperture openings. More advanced classes delve into working with difficult light—such as cloudy weather or days when the sun is set on strobe light—and others explore how to navigate computer software for photo manipulation.
