‘Just Bought a DSLR camera’, One day photography course held in Dunedin.
You’ve just bought your DSLR camera. You’ve worked out how to turn it on, and are taking photos on Auto. The camera takes nice photos on Auto, however you feel that there has to be more to this whole photography thing, than shooting on Auto.
You are right! There is more and that ‘more’ is when you turn Auto off and take control of your camera. By doing so, you are making the decisions instead of letting the camera make them, and therefore you have a whole lot more input into the final photo. The computer chip in your camera is good, but it’s no match for the human brain. Moving away from Auto is making the jump from 'happy snapper' to photographer.
So contact us now and sign up for our next course.
What you’ll learn on this course:
This one-day photography course will start you down the path of being a photographer. You’ll learn when to set certain apertures and shutter speeds and several ways to set them.
We’ll look at the different ways that a camera can focus or be focused and in which situation you may choose to use the different ways.
We’ll look at setting ISO and options available on Auto ISO, and when to use what.
We’ll also look at different picture settings and white balance and the benefits of shooting in RAW.
As well as how to use your camera, we will cover some basic things that will make a big difference to your landscape photography and to your people photography (landscape and people being the two most common subjects photographed)
Each course will be limited to 5 people, so you will get lots of one-on-one help.
Following the day of instruction, as a free optional extra, we will go out onto Otago peninsula for an evening shoot. This is another opportunity to practice what you have learnt, this time under real conditions.
Price is $165 per person
Our next one day workshop will be held on April 6th.
