What’s it all about?

Ever taken what you thought would be a perfect picture, only to have it come out too light, too dark, overexposed, underexposed or even (gasp) blurry?! Or perhaps you are addicted to the auto-settings on your camera, and are scared to start twiddling knobs?

This class is a chance to learn the fundamental elements of photography, and to understand once and for all which elements do what. You’ll leave with some top tips and the confidence to push your own camera to the limit.

What will we cover?

In this introductory course, you will learn the different elements that make for a good photograph, and use a professional camera to see how these simple details can make a big difference to the end product.

You are also invited to bring along your own camera (no matter how old it is) and discover that the trick to a good photo is not necessarily the technology, but the personality behind the camera (and perhaps a steady hand).

Over the course of the class we will cover:

  • A brief history of the camera
  • Basic photography theory
  • Practical tips and tricks

Who will be teaching?

Brett Robson has been working in the photography industry for over ten years. Originally self-taught, he has worked primarily as a portrait photographer, but has also covered fashion, celebrity and sporting events.
