Discovering Photography 2012

published on 30 January 2012

This year is going to be exciting, after running a couple of courses last year I’ve expanded the basic course into a workshop and already reserved a couple of dates in my calendar.

The workshop is still about the basics of photography, except this one is longer and you’ll get the chance to work with your camera and ask questions about your camera, which I will answer. So, without further ado, here are the details:

Course Summary

No experience necessary! I will provide a basic understanding of photography and light, guiding you through practical exercises that illustrate the elements of photography. You will then have the chance to put into practice the theory you have learned by using your camera to take some interesting pictures in and around the studio.

Bring your own camera along with you and get to know it better while learning simple tricks to help you take beautiful pictures.
