CameraDialCameraDial Beginner's Photography Workshop

If you are new to Digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) photography, or you've had a camera for a while but need to understand how photography really works, join Colin for a workshop that will teach you the basics of exposure, metering and white balance. You'll leave with a good understanding of photographic terminology and techniques and in addition, you will be introduced to composition principles that will help you take your photography to the next level. 

This class is hands-on and includes shooting assignments so you should bring a digital SLR camera that has manual controls (or point & shoot with manual controls), and the camera's handbook. 

Located in Ballantyne, these workshops will involve some class time and time outdoors  to practice in a beautiful park setting (weather permitting). Location & other details will be sent once you have registered.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn the elements of photography in the classroom and on location
  • Understand the Exposure Triangle settings for ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture
  • Know why you need to get out of Auto modes

  • Control your camera to give you the best photo in every situation
