Project Description

Half Day Photography Course
For Beginners

This short indoors photography course is aimed at total beginners who own a camera and want to unleash some of its amazing potential. Over just 4 hours, you will learn how to operate your camera, understand the basics of exposure, and get immediately applicable tips for travel, landscape and portraiture photography that professionals always use.

After the course, you will have mastered…

  • The basics of your camera settings and features – all taught in simple terms
  • How to use different lenses and equipment – and why
  • Composing striking photos from awe-inspiring landscapes to dreamy portraits
  • Creating photos that are sharp, colorful and well composed

During this course, you will learn:

  • Camera features – how to use ISO, aperture, shutter speed, shooting modes, flash and focus
  • Basic exposure – master exposure no matter your environment – using ISO, shutter speed and aperture
  • Creative techniques – using aperture to artistically change depth-of-field (e.g. blurry backgrounds in portraits), shutter speed to blur or freeze motion (e.g. light trails or insects mid-flight), and more
  • Composing a scene – from rule-of-thirds to posing photography subjects, learn the essential skills and creative theories to ‘level up’ your photography
  • Landscape photography practical tips
  • Trip photography practical tips
  • Portrait photography basics, posing, lighting
  • Lenses and gear – what lenses are right for you? You’ll learn the fundamentals to help you choose and effectively use your gear depending on your goals
  • Common mistakes – are your photos poorly exposed? Blurry? Maybe they’re just unexciting? We’ll help you critically examine your photography to keep you improving for years after the course

Requirements:

  • Your camera: DSLR or mirrorless or superzoom
  • If you don’t have a camera, we offer free DSLR camera to use during the course (please tell us in advance after your registration).
