Intensive Photography Course
For Beginners

You have a camera, but feel overwhelmed by how it works? End up using the Auto mode or your phone’s camera instead?

The Intensive 7 hours Beginners Course will equip you with the most important skills needed to create high-quality photography in just one day. During the first 4 hours, you’ll learn key photographic concepts and techniques (exposure triangle, composition, shooting modes, focus, and more). After a well-earned lunch break, we’ll take you outside for 3 hours to put your newfound knowledge into practice. Feel stuck or overwhelmed? Relax – our approachable instructors will be by your side.

What do I have to bring?

  • Your camera: DSLR or mirrorless or superzoom
  • If you don’t have a camera, we offer free DSLR camera to use during the course (please tell us in advance after your registration).
  • Positive attitude and passion for visual arts 🙂

This course will cover:

  • Camera features – how to use ISO, aperture, shutter speed, shooting modes, flash and focus
  • Basic exposure – master exposure no matter your environment – using ISO, shutter speed and aperture
  • Creative techniques – using aperture to artistically change depth-of-field (e.g. blurry backgrounds in portraits), shutter speed to blur or freeze motion (e.g. light trails or insects mid-flight), and more
  • Composing a scene – from rule-of-thirds to posing photography subjects, learn the essential skills and creative theories to ‘level up’ your photography
  • Landscape photography practical tips
  • Trip photography practical tips
  • Portrait photography basics, posing, lighting
  • Lenses and gear – what lenses are right for you? You’ll learn the fundamentals to help you choose and effectively use your gear depending on your goals
  • Common mistakes – are your photos poorly exposed? Blurry? Maybe they’re just unexciting? We’ll help you critically examine your photography to keep you improving for years after the course
