Event description

Description


Who is this workshop for? - Anyone who wants to understand how their camera works and take their photography to the next level. But essentially it is a course for people who are afraid to take their camera out of auto! Maybe you want to take better pictures of your kids because they always turn out blurry or you'd like to capture those treasured memories of a family holiday. It's also for those who have dabbled a little in manual mode but are struggling to get the results they are striving for.

This workshop is particularly useful for lifestyle, food, parenting and fashion bloggers or small businesses/makers wanting to improve their product photography.

What will you learn? - The workshop will be divided into two sessions. The first will be a breakdown of how your camera works and learning what each of those scary things really mean (aperture/ISO/shutter speed). We will also look at how to frame your subject better, focus mode, exposure and how to use natural light to your advantage. It'll take you from shooting in auto mode to being able to shoot with your own camera in manual mode. The second part will be putting your new knowledge to the test using your own camera and there will be opportunities to take some practice shots trying out prop styling and visual storytelling techniques.

What do I need to bring? - You, your camera - a DSLR camera and the kit lens or the lens you use most often. If you have your camera manual then that is useful to bring along too. A fully charged battery and a blank SD memory card. A notebook and pen are also a good idea.

After the workshop - You'll be given a handout reminding you of what we've covered during the workshop and you will be able to join a private Facebook group with the other attendees for further support and inspiration.
