About Beginners Workshop – Weds 27th December 2017
This workshop is designed as an introduction to your digital camera, and will enable you to take control of the photographs being taken. Firstly there will be an explanation of the basic camera modes, to give you an understanding of your camera’s capabilities.
We will then concentrate on getting you off the Auto mode and learn how to understand Aperture Priority to create blurred (out of focus) backgrounds in your portrait and close-up shots, and to take detailed landscape photos.
We will then discuss, how to avoid camera shake (blurry out of focus images), how to shoot in low light and where to focus.
A practical session will follow, you will be split into small groups based on the type of camera used, this way more detailed explanations of camera settings can be shown, and we will then venture to a couple of locations to put it all into practice by taking some close-up, portrait & landscape shots.
As the workshop progresses there will be help on lighting and composition.
