About this course / workshop
Held at the State library in South bank, this popular theory course covers a wide range of topics and camera features as well as allowing plenty of time for specific questions, viewing images and discussing techniques. This course is ideal if you are a beginner, have just purchases an SLR camera or have maybe owned one for a while but have never used it outside of the automatic setting or fully understood the more creative manual modes that an SLR camera offers.
What you will learn
Understanding and controlling exposure, aperture and shutter speeds, the advantages of shooting in manual, focusing modes and selective focusing, understanding lens focal length, which lenses should I use and why, depth of field, ISO and white balance.
What camera do you need
Digital SLR or Mirrorless / micro four thirds cameras are ideal as you will need to use the manual functions of the camera. The smaller ‘bridge cameras’ may also be used but we do recommend checking with us before booking.
