The attendees today were a mix of Canon and Nikon users which helped run through the controls a bit more easily and everybody was able to get hints and tips from each other. The courses main aim is to learn how to use the manual controls and take over from the automatic mode that is so often used with these sophisticated and clever cameras. We touched on RAW processing, exposure compensation and also using depth of field in various situations to over come problems that can arise. A practical session helped everybody understand the importance of aperture, depth of field and ISO controls. The mix of Broooklands museum and the Mercedes World centre next door with its modern architecture was ideal for a practical session where the photographers could put the mornings session to use in terms of using aperture and manual exposure controls. There was an added bonus of using panning techniques to catch some of the stunning Mercedes AMG GT and saloons in action around the skid pan of the test track.
