TAUGHT IN A FUN WAY, FULL OF REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES & ANECDOTES

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!

✔️ Shutterspeed, aperture, iso
✔️ No more unsharp photos
✔️ Learn how to take photos with a soft background
✔️ All about light, lighting and composition
✔️ Small group with 1-on-1 coaching and fun and informal setting
✔️ 125% CO2 neutral – that’s climate positive! 🌳

Many times during the day we will walk through the zoo, to practice with your newly learned skills.

Krijn taught me (I am at beginners level) the basics of photography, which I now apply to every photo that I take. This resulted in amazing Safari photos! Especially knowledge of the composition is something that pays off immediately when you’re an inexperienced photographer. I can’t recommend him enough: excellent hospitality, great company and you’ll learn a lot!

Zondag 16 augustus mijn verjaardagscadeau geïnd: de basiscursus fotografie van Krijn in Ouwehands dierenpark. Ik heb een geweldige dag gehad, eindelijk geleerd om mooie foto’s te maken zonder de automatische stand op de camera. Alle stappen worden rustig en duidelijk uitgelegd met heel veel tijd om te oefenen in de praktijk en je vragen te stellen en feedback op je foto’s te vragen. Pas wel op: Krijn heeft een enorme passie voor fotografie, deze is zeer besmettelijk! 😉

De cursus Basisfotografie gevolgd bij Krijn van der Giessen Photography. Krijn is een gepassioneerd wild life fotograaf en brengt op een duidelijke en begrijpelijke manier zijn passie voor fotografie over tijdens een geweldige workshop in de dierentuin. Welke ook culinair super verzorgd is. Dus wil je net als ik niet meer automatisch fotograferen, meld je aan bij Krijn voor een workshop en je zult er geen spijt van hebben....erewoord!!

Wil je echt goed de basis leren van fotografie? Volg dan deze cursus. Krijn is zeer kundig, legt duidelijk en goed uit en doet alles vanuit zorg. Ik heb super veel geleerd, mooie foto's gemaakt op een hele mooie locatie! Ik ben erg blij dat ik de cursus hebt gevolgd en heb nu nog meer plezier in mijn fotografie. Kan al niet wachten op de volgende cursussen die ik bij Krijn ga volgen!

PHOTOGRAPHY MADE EASY!

My 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, 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: we will do some light painting, look at how to photograph stars and star trails and transform you into ‘photo journalist for a day’, when you go out on your first photo assignment, shooting your best possible photo! All for fun of course!
