DesignMentor Training Publishes The Interactive Photography Exposure Wheel, the first in a series of free e-learning tools

DesignMentor Training's Photography Exposure Wheel-a learning tool for taking digital photos from blasť to brilliant! (August 22, 2006)

The first in a series of design tools published by DesignMentor Training, the interactive Photography Exposure Wheel has just been made publicly available and is free. The DesignMentor Training Photography Exposure Wheel provides f-stop and shutter settings for a variety of outdoor shooting conditions and film speeds. It has been developed by DesignMentor Training in collaboration with master photographer and DesignMentor Training Class Instructor, Ken Milburn.

As the design industry continues to get more and more competitive, creatives increasingly rely on new tools to give them an edge. DesignMentor Training's Photography Exposure Wheel ( helps photographers recognize that subtle changes in camera settings can result in dramatic changes that can take a photograph from blasť to brilliant. Making the Exposure Wheel more user-friendly, co-creator, Ken Milburn has critiqued many outdoor photos and associated them with the Exposure Wheel settings, providing context for the otherwise abstract set of f-stop and shutter speed setting options.

DesignMentor Training offers Creative Professionals the means to add advanced Digital Photography skills to their portfolios through three instructor-led online digital classes.
