I believe that anyone can learn to take a good photo on their camera in manual mode in 3 hours. In fact I think using manual settings is the key to taking good photos every time because you are in control of everything. It’s about understanding shutterspeed, aperture and iso settings and how they all work together.
Every couple of months I run a photography course which covers these basic principles. I also provide ideas on composition and how make your images much more than just snapshots by getting them to tell a story.
Saturday 18th May will be my next course date. We will meet at 10am at the café in the Tate Modern on the Southbank. Over coffee we will run through the technical principals of photography. Then we will go outside (or stay inside if it is raining) and practice what we have learnt.
This is a fun and practical way to grasp the basic skills of photography and understanding how to make the most out of your camera.
The workshop will cover aperture, shutterspeed and iso, how to freeze motion and how to create blurry backgrounds. You will also pick up tips on composition and how to use your photography to tell a story rather than just take snaps.
