DSLR and Mirrorless Photography Basics Workshop

Learn how to use a DSLR or Mirrorless camera



3 hours Class size 1 to 6

label $125 (Afterpay available)

This three-hour photography tour is perfect if you are at a beginner or an intermediate level, and aiming to improve your digital photography skills.
Along with your experienced teacher, you will be taken through your camera's functions, and, whether you are a tourist or a local, you will capture a new side of Sydney using the manual settings on your camera: exposure control, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and tips on composition, lighting, and white balance.
You’ll learn how to take an interesting portrait, architectural and landscape images, as well as shots using shallow depth of field (blurry backgrounds).
We will walk the historic streets of Paddington and Elizabeth Bay drawing inspiration from the surrounding Victorian terraces and a unique Sydney architectural site as well as experimenting with water reflections of Sydney Harbour.
This informal workshop is the perfect opportunity to discover less visited areas of Sydney while developing and mastering your photography skills and style.
