If you are new to photography, or been into photography for a while but are sill not sure what the different metering modes are all about and which one you should be using, then this seminar will help.

I will cover the three major metering modes and explain how they work and when it is best to use them. I will also cover the benefit of using a held held metre.

I will then explain the Ansel Adams Zone System. The Zone System is all about metering and changing your exposure to get the best results. After changing your exposure, post processing (with film it was called developing) will be required.  Ansel Adams called it, "Pushing and Pulling"
