Beginners Photography Workshop
Wednesday 27 December 2017
Camera Solutions - 18 Frodsham Street, CH1 3JL
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.
What you will need
DSLR, Mirrorless, Compact System, Bridge or Superzoom Camera
Fully Charged Battery
Empty Memory Card
Clothing suitable for a December day!!
We will meet at Camera Solutions at 12pm (noon), and move to a café for the initial part of the workshop, before moving to locations for practical shooting. The workshop will last for approx 3hrs and we will aim to finish around 3pm
