WORKSHOPS 2018

If you have a DSLR camera (or a smartphone with a camera) and would like to learn to use it better, come along to one of our practical workshops. You will learn about all the different camera settings - depth of field, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus points etc… and how these can completely change the look of your photos when you adjust them.

After going through the camera settings, you will learn the basic principles of photography - composition, framing and lighting, we will spend time learning to edit your photos on Lightroom to make them pop!
