This photography masterclass is ideal for those enthusiasts who want to take their photography beyond the basics. This intensive 15 hours of class, over 6 mid-week sessions or over 3-weekend sessions. It will cover off on full manual exposure, lens choice and use of flash. With a veteran photographer you will balance the theory and knowledge with various practical shoots. There will also a long exposure practical shoot session and a streetscape shoot to understand how to use lighting and flash, both on and off camera.
PLEASE NOTE this is an advanced, technical course and you need to understand aperture, shutter & ISO before attending. With a professional photographer we will review the relationship of exposure, light metering, and full manual capture setting. We will also discuss lens choice for landscapes and portraiture, use of flash and apply the Rule of Thirds in framing those memorable moments.
This is a balanced theory and practical learning and students will receive handout notes. This is a limited small class size of ten so please book early. Session content may vary as we take opportunity with photo opportunities.

Dress suitably for the weather and the environment of kneeling or sitting outdoors when taking a photo. A solid backpack or camera bag is recommended to carry all your personal and camera accessories as we move between the classroom and the outdoor backdrop.
