Love Photography - Beginners Course (London - October 2016)

OVERVIEW

  • 1 DAY PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP (BEGINNERS)
  • MAXIMUM GROUP SIZE: 8 / MINIMUM GROUP SIZE: 5
  • LOCATION: LONDON BRIDGE
  • COST: £69 1 PERSON / OFFER: £119 2 PEOPLE
  • DATE/TIME: SATURDAY 15 OCTOBER / 10.00AM

The course aims to give participants a good introduction to the main features of their camera whilst keeping things as simple as possible. It's a fun and social way of learning and it's not important to have any prior knowledge of your camera.

My objectives are for you to take control of your camera by moving away from fully automatic modes so you can start to achieve consistently better photographs.

The course starts at 10am with a meeting at a Gelateria 3BIS coffee shop in Borough Market, London. At this meeting I will give a talk about camera settings and hand out some notes for you. You will also have a chance to ask questions.

Around 11am we will all head out together on a 3 mile photowalk. We will take our time on the walk and I anticipate this to take approximately 2 hours. I will spend as much time as possible with each individual and I encourage you to ask questions as we go. I will be setting up a few test shots for you to take, this will require you to use the correct settings for the perfect exposure and I’m on hand to help with that.

We will arrive back at Borough Market around 1.00pm. You are free to grab something to eat from one of the many food stalls in the market or if you prefer you can head straight to the pub where we will do our review session. The pub offers food also.

When we are ready we will do a slideshow of everyones images on my laptop. I will offer a few words of encouragement and advice as we go.

The day will finish at no later than 3.30pm.

We will learn about...

  • ISO
  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speeds
  • Shooting modes: Programme and Aperture Priority.
  • Exposure Compensation

The de-brief session...

  • Image review (slideshow) and critique session
