Introduction to photography - group training shot


Our most popular photography workshop and the one we recommend  if you are using “auto mode” on your camera. After this workshop you will become more confident with your camera and all its setting, which in return will help make your photography far more creative.

You will learn how to use your camera in full manual mode and how to set the correct aperture and shutter speeds for various photographic scenarios.

The main part of this workshop will be on location in the photogenic fishing village of Leigh-on-Sea. You will be guided how to see light, textures, shapes and leading lines. All these elements will help you create more considered and striking images.

You will be given information sheets to take home, so you can easily put into practice everything you have been taught during this workshop.

Lunch and refreshments throughout the day is also included.

At the end of your workshop we will review your images and give you feedback. There will also be a prize for the best image of the day.
