The three-hour workshop, titled Take Your Camera Off Program Mode!, explores concepts such as aperture, shutter speed, and white balance. Students learn to properly focus the camera, distinguish between different lenses, and arrange composition. Classes take place at the Omni Chicago Hotel and are held on Saturday, June 22, or Sunday, June 23, at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m.
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.
