If you’ve been letting your camera make creative decisions for you - using it on Auto-everything - and maybe getting generic-looking photos, here’s an opportunity to learn how to take full creative control and capture your own uniquely personal photos, the way you see things with your own photographic eye.

If you want to take your photography further and experience more advanced photography courses and workshops, you will want to know this stuff. There’s no time like now to learn, and once you get the taste for full creative control you need never look back.

Content: As in other creative fields, making good photographs has always meant finding a personal balance between technique and aesthetics. While the technical aspects of digital photography can seem daunting (especially in Manual mode) it’s really not that complicated, it just requires practice. This workshop will give you a solid start on the path to achieving a balanced, holistic creative approach to your photography, opening up new possibilities for future development.

We’ll start with a run through the important camera controls and later, in the field, learn how to bring them together to allow you to capture photos the way you see them. During the day you can experiment with various combinations for different effects and you’ll find that what may seem a little confusing in theory will make sense and drop into place in practice.

Cameras: DSLR, Mirrorless Compact System, Four-Thirds, Bridge, Superzoom and Compact. (Workshop does not cover cellphone cameras or film cameras.)

Topics covered:
- Principals of composition
- Photographic vision and seeing
- Manual exposure for creative control
- Understanding f-stops; depth of field
- Understanding shutter speed; motion
- Controlling ISO and picture quality
- Light metering, histograms, exposure
- Using selective focus and deep focus
