Digital camera skills, beginners - Part 1

8 April 2018, 10.00 AM - 8 April 2018, 4.00 PM

Linnaeus study room, University of Bristol Botanic Garden

Are you stuck on photography 'Auto' pilot?. This one day workshop will show you that cameras are capable of so much more by taking you through your camera controls. Graham Parish will teach you about aperture priority, shutter priority, ISO and exposure compensation and help you put it into practice in the Botanic Garden.

By the end of the day you will have learnt how to improve your photos by knowing why and when to use both aperture priority and shutter priority, what effects the changing of ISO and exposure will have, and how to avoid camera shake.

Suitable for complete beginners or anyone seeking the skills or confidence to get off auto mode.

You will need to have a camera with both aperture priority (typically marked A or Av) and shutter priority modes (typically marked S or T). Any of these types of camera will do - compact, bridge, csc (compact system camera) or dslr.

£50 (including a light lunch - drinks not included)
