Beginner Photography Workshops
On our "Beginner Course" workshop you will learn how to develop and enhance your photographic eye and start to create great images rather than just taking snaps. The course will also allow you to get a better understanding about the functions of your camera.
The workshops are aimed at beginners and more advanced hobbyists alike, who are new to their camera or gear (whether a compact or DSLR) or who are looking for an introduction or refresher in photography. Have you just purchased your first DSLR ? Your first full frame ? Let our professional resource workshop leaders assist you in reaching a greater comfort level with your new equipment.
Your workshop will begin with a discussion on what makes "Good Composition".
- Orientation and the rule of thirds
- Leading lines, curves and S-bends
- Framing and filling the frame
- Perspective and depth of field
- Colour and shapes
This part will be a 30 to 60 minute discussion showing examples of good photographs and photos that could be improved upon
After our discussion we will head out for a two hour photoshoot at a predetermined location so that we can focus on the topic of the day.
At the end of our photo-walk we will gather once again in our meeting room and we will give you an introduction to possible editing techniques of the photos we took while we are together. Our software that we will use to edit are Bridge, Photoshop, Lightroom and NIK Software.
You will also receive handouts of photography tips and techniques to take home with you to help your continuing learning easier.
Total workshop time runs between 4 and 5 hours including driving to and from our local destinations.
Instructors will be one of the following teachers: Kevin A. Pepper, Kevin K. Pepper or Chris Pepper.
