Fujifilm’s X Series cameras have been well known for their classic looks and handling since their initial release in 2010. While the refined, throwback handling of the cameras, exhibited in touches such as the shutter speed dial on top and aperture rings on lenses, harkens back to the film days, these cameras are as advanced as any on the market. Join Rick Berk as he takes you inside these cameras’ extensive focus and exposure features to help participants get beyond the basics and take advantage of everything the camera has to offer.
In the first session, Rick reviews the X Series’ exposure system, including the metering modes and exposure modes, demonstrating how they work together to achieve the final image. From there he covers the many ways to customize the exposure system, and explain advanced features such as multi exposure, time-lapse, video, and more.
Next comes the Fuji autofocus system, where Rick explores both function and strategy. He explains how the AF and exposure systems work together to allow you to create more dynamic images, before diving into the numerous customization options to help users get the most from the camera.
Assignments are given after each session, allowing participants to practice new techniques and use previously undiscovered features for themselves. Rick reviews selected images during subsequent group sessions, offering tips and answering questions.
Take your Fujifilm X Series camera to the next level with this highly focused workshop as you learn to get the most from two essential camera functions and express yourself in new and exciting ways.

Zoom Video Conferencing software (available for no charge from Zoom.com) will be used to facilitate the class sessions. Further details will be emailed to registrants.
Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for one month after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after one month to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
