The beginner or novice photographer who has a digital SLR and wishes to progress beyond the green fully auto mode. People who want to take better photographs of their friends and family rather than point, shoot, and hope for the best.
What do I need to bring?
Your digital SLR camera, lens, your camera manual, memory card, battery and charger. You don’t need a particular brand of camera or lens. If you don’t have a digital SLR at the moment I can lend you one for the duration of the course.
What does the course cover?
Equipment – The anatomy of cameras, lenses, memory cards, filters and tripods.
Exposure – Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, Camera Modes, Metering
Composition – Angles, Repetition, Rules, Lines, Simplicity
Data Management – Sorting, storing and protecting your images.
This is a fun workshop rather than a lecture. As we cover new topics we will be taking photographs, reviewing the images, and discussing the results. You’ll be learning by practicing each new skill rather than just reading about it.
