In this specialty art course catering especially for teens, students will learn technical and creative aspects of photography.
Led by experienced local photographer Dirk Wallace, this full day workshop in the next school holidays will introduce a core set of skills that will help you get the most out of your digital camera.
The workshop will begin with an introduction to your digital camera, how to use each of the settings on your camera, and how to shoot with control. You will explore light, space and visual solutions while learning to experiment with ways to enhance digital images. This knowledge will help you move beyond 'happy snaps' and into beautiful, considered compositions.
You'll need to bring your own camera SLR (DSLR), or at least a high end compact camera with manual (M) setting, the camera manual and a tripod. There will be some studio lighting and other equipment available for participants to use, however Dirk welcomes students to bring along any other lighting or equipment that they would like to learn how to use.
