Are you a photographer who isn’t totally comfortable using your camera in manual mode? This is an ideal course for beginners or advanced students looking to become comfortable using your camera in manual mode that will help you refine your technical skills so you can create more satisfying images. We’ll be going deep into aperture and shutter speed, ISO, histograms, white balance, bracketing, and more. It’s all about being intentional in your technical decisions so you have better control of your images and storytelling. Through weekly assignments and critique, you’ll gain an understanding of camera controls, including how to capture movement, motion blur, create depth-of-field variations, and more.

It has been such an inspiring process taking classes with Samantha and Néstor. They’re such dedicated and talented teachers — I owe you both a lot of gratitude.

Néstor Pérez-Molière was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently resides in The Bronx. His practice takes place mainly in the realm of photography, but also incorporates performance, drawing, video, installation, and intaglio techniques. All of these are used in unison as he turns his camera on himself and delves into self-portraiture, exploring his relationship with his body, body image ideals, and food relationships as subject matter.

Nestor has an MFA from Hunter College and holds a BSc in botany. He was part of the Artist in the Marketplace and Creative Capital’s Taller mentorship programs, and was part of The Bronx Museum of the Art’s Fourth Biennial. He has exhibited at the Museo de las Américas, the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, Longwood Gallery, and the Liga de Artes de San Juan. He currently teaches digital and darkroom photography at the International Center of Photography and The Point CDC.
