This 45-minute workshop will introduce participants to camera optics. Focal length, aperture, lens distortions, and camera focusing systems will be discussed. In addition, information about lens choices for different sensor/film sizes and converting focal length from one format another will be covered. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to quickly ascertain proper lens and settings choices for desired photographs given the conditions. Basic DSLR knowledge is helpful but not mandatory.
This workshop will be conducted by VRC Teaching Assistant, Panchu Gudigar.
