This photography course is your direct path from an absolute beginners or intermediate level to mastering all essential photography techniques used to make iconic and unique images. Whether you just bought a new camera or have been using yours for years – if you want to learn how to properly use it this workshop is for you. In our »Beginners Become Masters« photography course you will learn how to use the camera’s aperture to control the sharpness and blurriness throughout the image. We’ll explain what depth-of-field really is and how it lets you tell a story with your photo rather than just document what you see. With the right aperture setting you can add a creamy backdrop to a portrait shot and make a face pop right out of the image or you can add that extra bit of sharpness to a vast and majestic landscape shot. The practical exercises are small individual or group assignments that are designed to help internalise the fundamental concepts of photography so that your newly acquired knowledge will really sink in and outlast the workshop. You will learn how to use aperture priority (called AV or just A mode) as well as shutter priority (called TV or S mode) and you’ll understand when to use which. We’ll teach you how to use different metering programs such as spot metering to skillfully expose a darker subject in front of a bright background. You’ll see how washed out skies get back their intense blue colour and how light and shadow can be used creatively to enrich the story your images are telling. You will learn how to use full manual mode (M mode) and when to use it (it’s not the right choice for every photo). Once you understand the fundamental principles of photography it’s easy to make the right choices quickly. Small individual or group assignments during the workshop help to make the new skills accessible to you permanently.
