Photography Workshops


Beginners DSLR Photography Workshop

This short beginners DSLR photography workshop is aimed at total beginners who own a Digital Single Reflex camera and want to unpack some of its amazing potential. Participants will learn how to operate their cameras in manual mode, make correct exposures and understand the basics like aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

By ensuring that you understand what photography actually is and how the digital SLR works as a tool in this context you will gain an understanding and control of the DSLR system which no user manual or trial and error approach could ever hope to give you.

This workshop normally runs from 10.00am to 3.00pm with a short coffee break halfway through.

During the workshop you will learn:

  • Metering – the most important function of your camera
  • ISO – photo sensitivity explained in clear, jargon free terms
  • White balance – how to avoid unpleasant blue and yellow casts in your photography
  • Focus – an introduction to this elusive and deceptively tricky area of photography
  • Programmes – the main programmes explained from the ground up
  • Lenses – an in depth exploration, and how camera lenses can help add more creative control to your digital photography
  • f-stops – how to get the desired exposure using a combination of shutter speeds and f/stops

Our beginners DSLR photography workshop not only explains the basic science and nature of photography, but also introduces lots of hands-on practice sessions during which you will learn how to control and combine all different camera functions creatively.

  • How to compose great shots
  • How to capture sport and action on your camera
  • The best way to photograph people, objects and landscapes.
  • The use of filters.

We will be going out and about during the day as this will give you the chance to shoot whilst you learn the points above

We have some equipment you may use during the day such as tripods and filters etc., so do not worry about these if you do not already have them.

The things you need to bring along on these workshops are, your camera, batteries, and plenty of memory cards, a note book and pen and suitable clothing for the day.

We will be running these workshops along a canal system which will offer us plenty of photographic choice during the day, there will be some walking but it will be flat and pathed in most parts.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
