Photography FUN -damentals

Our one day Workshop designed to get you familiar with your Camera. This Workshop is designed for the novice to intermediate user, to help you understand the workings of your camera and some of the general principals in photography to get the most out of your kit. Designed to eliminate motion blur and over / under exposed images so you can effectively capture the image you are trying to.

The Workshop explores the different styles of photography, various settings of your SLR Camera and how to use ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed to produce the image you are aiming for. You will also learn a number of composition rules, basic lighting and shooting modes.

The Workshop runs for 6 hours and includes practical exercises with constructive feedback and an opportunity to meet other like minded people with a passion for photography, and the chance to ‘pick the brain’ of a professional photographer in a relaxed environment.

We cover topics such as:

  • Explanation of the working parts of your SLR camera
  • The different modes of your camera
  • Photography styles
  • Lighting
  • Using ISO / Aperture/ Shutter Speed
  • Various rules of composition
  • and More!

Photography 6X

This Workshop is run over 6 lessons, five in the classroom and one in the field, with a field trip to a great photographic location in the Narrabri Shire.

We cover all of the topics in the FUN-damentals Workshop, but go into greater depth and spend more time on each of the key learning areas. The target audience is novice to intermediate photographers, with the aim of the Workshop to get you out of automatic shooting modes to have greater control of the DSLR Camera.

The Workshop also includes “homework” to come back to class with and compare notes with other like minded enthusiasts. Share your ideas and learn from others and be guided by a professional photographer along the way!

Each lesson runs for approximately 4 hours and includes practical components. It’s not just class room learning!

We cover a range of topics:

  • Explanation of the working parts of your SLR camera
  • The different modes of your camera
  • Photography styles
  • Lighting
  • Using ISO / Aperture/ Shutter Speed
  • Various rules of composition
  • HDR photography techniques
  • Night shooting and various other forms of photography
  • Photo editing in Adobe Lightroom (minimum trial period license required)
  • Much, much more!

The 5th lesson is a field trip that allows you put into practice what you have learnt over the previous weeks and in the final lesson learn how to edit your images using Adobe Lightroom (a 7 day trial version would be of benefit). We will print and mount your favourite image (limited sizes)!

Classes can be paid individually at $70 per session or up front at a reduced price ($350).
 
Note: Due to various commitments, this Work Shop is generally run over Six (6) weeks, with a gap week. Depending on availability of students and the Centre, this could be condensed if required.
