I'm offering my Manual Mode Course in one of two ways for November. You can take the course via email at your own pace or as a group starting November 9th. The cost, either way, is the same as always -$99.
All you need for the course is a camera capable of Program Mode ("P" on your mode dial), Aperture Priority ("A" or "Av"), Shutter Speed Priority ("S" or "Tv"), and Manual Mode "M") and a tripod. The tripod doesn't need to be fancy, a $25 Walmart one is just fine.
The course is set up in 4 parts. When done as a group it's a part a week for 4 weeks. It's light on reading and heavy on hands-on practice. If taking it as part of a group it'll happen as part of a mailing list this time around rather than the Flickr group used in the past. You'll need an hour for practice at least 2 nights a week (minimum) and a few hours over the weekend in order to get the practice and projects completed in order to get the most out of the course. It's a strenuous 4 weeks for many people with busy lives, which is why I'm now offering "at your own pace" lessons via private email as well.
If you're interested in taking the Manual Mode course, contact me at my name at muddyboots.org (that's Ee-are-eye-sea-ay at muddyboots.org or see this link), and please note that class space is limited in order to ensure my availability for questions, etc.
