In the last couple of decades, the digital revolution has enabled photography to transition from an obscure art form to a mode of visual expression so ubiquitous we don’t even need cameras to snap images any more – our smartphones will do.
While this is good in many ways, it also means a lot of technical and aesthetic basics are lost, and a lot of bad photography is disguised with retro filters.
This 3-hour tour — run by industry professionals schooled in everything from fashion, music and weddings to reportage, travel and corporate photography – will help you better understand the technical aspects of your camera as well as learn compositional tips that will improve your photography immediately.
Each tour is tailored to students’ needs and learning levels. However you can expect to learn about:
The relationship between shutter, aperture and ISO – and how they work together to create an exposure.
How to achieve depth of field and capture blur/movement.
How to use leading lines, rule of thirds and other crucial composition tools.
How to set up your camera so that you control it (and not the other way around).
What focus points are and how they can improve your shots.
How to translate what you are seeing into a strong photographic image.
This tour involves an initial meet up and technical showcase in a café followed by a 1.5-2 hour walk. The location is flexible.
SLR camera (digital or analogue) or advanced compact (with option to adjust aperture, shutter and ISO).
