This 4 hour practical workshop builds on the knowledge acquired on our Digital Photography – Level 1 and 2 workshops, this time stepping outside the classroom for some ‘real life’ shooting. The aim of the course is to help photographers apply shooting theory on location, and it is specifically timed to show you how to make the most of the light available at different points of the day from midday sun to sunset and dusk.
You will carry out a number of challenges aimed at exercising different techniques, practicing new skills and encouraging creative experimentation. You will have the opportunity to pursue the ideas and techniques that most interest you with as much guidance as is required. The topics covered will include
Who should attend:
This class is for those of you who have a good understanding of the exposure concepts: ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed as well as white balance and light metering. Students who completed GPP's Digital Photography Level 1 or 2 are well qualified to join this course.
Aim of the course:
This class is developed for you if you want to put into practice the information and rules learnt and use them instinctively, allowing you to work freely and creatively with your camera. It is also an opportunity to have helpful hands-on guidance from professionals on solving problems you may encounter.
The day will start with a quick review of how to prepare your camera for what you are about to shoot, and review of basic composition rules before heading out on location. The bulk of the workshop time will be shooting on-location where you will explore the workings of your camera with a range of exercises under the guidance of your instructor.
What you should bring:
* Your camera with a charged battery & sim card
* A variety of lenses
* A tripod
* A reflector (if you have one)
* a flash or speed light (if you have one)
After the session, you may choose 3 pictures and upload them to the virtual classroom for review and critique by you instructor.
