Photography Level 1

Instructor: To Be Confirmed



In this workshop, you will break free of Auto mode as you discover how your camera works, learn the ropes of different types of photo gear, and gain a solid understanding of technical elements like ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and white balance. We will also explore the creative side of photography with a focus on the traditional rules of composition and storytelling. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to confidently craft and shoot photos in your semi-manual modes.
