Success at any level begins with a working knowledge of the fundamentals of photographic principles and a
basic understanding of camera menus and exposure controls. This includes the ability to operate one’s camera
in Manual Mode or to work in automatic modes with the understanding of how the photographer’s influence
over these modes is needed to render proper exposures. Also, an understanding of the benefits of working in
RAW verses Jpeg is encouraged. Once this level of skill has been achieved, photographers will then have a
better opportunity for success as they pursue other areas of photographic interests.
