On this workshop Damien Lovegrove will impart his expert knowledge in an easy to understand and fun to learn way. No prior knowledge is needed for this back to basics event, just a passion to learn. You will learn about light and composition, as well as a thorough grounding in the technical stuff.
Damien's back to basics, no nonsense approach will ensure you have the freedom to make informed decisions about camera settings.
The basic controls on any SLR or compact system camera are quite straightforward to use. Getting your head around the relationship between shutter speed, aperture and ISO sensitivity is the first step on the road to camera mastery.
What you will learn
1. You will learn how to use your digital SLR or CSC creatively. Damien will empower you to make informed decisions about the exposure and image quality settings of your camera. You will learn about lenses and perspective, f numbers, and shutter speeds, bit depth and file formats. In fact everything you ought to know, but were too afraid to ask.
2. Damien will be covering the basic functions and foundations of camera use that are common to all digital SLRs and semi-pro mirrorless cameras.
Who should attend?
If you find yourself hesitating to switch away from your camera's program/auto modes or you are frustrated at your lack of foundation knowledge then this event is for you. No one is too young or old to be a photographer.
An ideal present?
If you or your partner has a new camera but not the 'know how' to get the most out of it then this day will make a great gift. Knowledge is a wonderful thing.
