Description

1. EVERYDAY AWESOME PHOTOS (9am–10.45am)

Ideal for anyone who wants to take better personal pictures with just their phone or compact camera.

Learn a few simple principles of light and composition to help you photograph the everyday with a bit of extra awesomeness, from your toddler racing across the floor, your travels, your culinary skills or your garden.

We will cover:

  • The soul of photography
  • Leading the eye around your image
  • Choosing the best light
  • Photographing people at their best
  • Indoor lighting and restrictions

Includes photo challenges around Castlefield canals to practise your new skills.

What to bring:

  • A photograph you love to share with the group. Can be one you've taken yourself, or one you've found. Either printed, or just on your phone.
  • Something, anything, to take pictures with – your phone, compact camera or DSLR (make sure it's charged!)
  • Outdoor wear fit for the weather. We will be walking around outside for most of the session.




2. GET TO KNOW YOUR DSLR (11am–1pm)

Got a digital SLR that you’ve never taken off Auto mode? If you’re anything like me, you may find technical photography books difficult to get into.

Instead, this is a hands-on practical introduction to aperture, shutter speed, focussing and white balance to give you more control over your camera controls so you can unleash your creativity.

We will cover:

  • What do all the knobs and dials do?
  • Nailing a great exposure in manual mode
  • Beautiful portraits using depth of field
  • Control motion with shutter speed
  • Handle low light conditions with ISO

Includes photo challenges around Castlefield canals to practise your new skills.

What to bring:

  • A fully charged Digital SLR or camera with manual mode and memory
  • Outdoor wear fit for the weather. We will be walking around outside for most of the session.
