Whether you are completely new to photography and want to learn the basics, or want to refresh your skills and take your photography to the next level: this 1-day beginners workshop, taking place in a zoo, is here to help you master your camera.
If you just bought yourself a nice new camera, I can hear you think: ‘what on earth do I need to do with all those buttons?’ Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!
I will help you understand the basics of photography in a step-by-step way, so you can take full control of all those buttons! It will be no longer the camera who decides how your photo will turn out, but you telling the camera exactly how you want your photo to look! This workshop is a combination of 3 theoretical en 3 practical blocks. Many times during the day we will walk through the zoo, to directly put your newly learned skills into action!
✔️ Shutterspeed, aperture, iso
✔️ No more unsharp photos
✔️ Learn how to take photos with a soft background
✔️ All about light, lighting and composition
✔️ Learn how to create captivating compositions
✔️ Small group with 1-on-1 coaching and fun and informal setting
✔️ 125% CO2 neutral – that’s climate positive! 🌳
✔️ Including zoo access, lunch, coffee, tea, juices & snacks
My photography courses start at the basics. We look at your camera in a physical way to learn to understand all the abbreviations, buttons, etc. How does your camera work? Why do you need (or do not need) different lenses?
Then we will look at the first practical steps: aperture, shutter speed, iso value, exposure compensation. What does this mean? How do you use and control it? And how do you use it to unlock endless creativity?
Now it’s time to get off auto, and move to more creative camera settings: you are in control of your camera now! Next up are subjects like composition, story telling, direction of light, white balance, the histogram and more.
To finish off we will play around with the creative options we came to know during the course: you will become ‘photo journalist for a day’, when you go out on your first photo assignment, shooting your best possible photo! All for fun of course!
