Time: Arrive 9.30-9.45am, workshop will finish for 4pm

We will be looking at the technical aspects of the DSLR camera, such as settings and functions but will also be looking at how we can be creative with our photographic skills.

We will be be discussing the fundamentals of composition, depth of field, aperture, shutter speed and ISO features but, perhaps more importantly, we will be breaking the day up with regular practical photography sessions which we will then review.

Maximum number on workshop is 10 people. This class is suitable for adults and accompanied teens.

We will look at the fundamentals of photography in detail - light, composition and subject - and will also touch on a wide range of topics such as using natural light, lenses and other equipment, landscape photography, action photos, close up and macro images, black and white photography, storing and organisation of image files... and more!

The workshop tuition, advice and guidance given by Sally on the day form the basis for this workshop.

What's included in the price?

The workshop tuition, advice and guidance given by Sally on the day form the basis for this workshop.

You will need a DSLR camera or micro 2/3rds camera. Rule of thumb is that if you have interchangeable lenses then this is a workshop which is suitable for you - contact me before booking if you have a bridge camera and we will look at suitability.

Hot and cold drinks plus biscuits are included - please bring your own lunch and any other refreshments which you would like.

Want to review this course?

This was a relaxed group, there was a lot to take in, in a short time, sally made it easy to understand all the camera functions and didn’t mind going back over things. I feel I gained confidence in my ability to use my camera to its best.
I would recommend this course to complete beginners or someone who has a little knowledge but wants to learn more about composition, light etc
