Camera Essentials

Summary

Modern digital cameras offer a daunting array of functions and possibilities. We won’t bombard you with loads of facts and technical information; we’re photographers ourselves, and we prefer a hands-on approach.

Our Camera Essentials tour is a workshop based in the field, not in the studio, so we’ll be able to combine a little theory with lots of practical demonstrations and group exercises.

The journey begins with understanding your camera and learning how to navigate the controls and functions. You’ll learn about aperture, shutter speed, how to select the right lens and how to use it to create spectacular images. We’ll show you simple composition techniques to improve your photographs.

Then we’ll look at colour balance and how to produce different moods using the direction of light. We explain about ‘quality of light’ and how to use it to create mood and emotion.

You’ll see results by the end of the workshop, and will finish your first tutorial with confidence about how to handle a camera to create images that go beyond the snapshot.
