A Beginners Guide To Photography (2 days)
Instructor: Sarah McDowell
Each day will begin with a focused lesson and then students will head out to put the lesson into practice.
Day One: Your Camera Body
A tutorial on the most commonly used functions on the body of your DSLR camera, what they are and how to use them: Shutter speed - Aperture - ISO - White Balance - Exposure - Focus Points
Day Two: Lenses, Light and Composition
We spend some time demystifying the camera lens and what the different numbers and names mean, what they do, and what you should use different lenses for.
Day two will move into the more subjective side of photography, covering the importance of light in photography and some tips on dealing with different light scenarios, when to get the best light and what to do if the light is less than optimum. Finally we will move on to composition - how to compose a good photo, tips on photographing different subjects - people, still life, landscapes, street photography, plus discuss what makes an interesting photo.
