What you'll get

  • An understanding of technical jargon such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO and so on
  • An explanation of the different modes on your camera
  • Tips on how to shoot mindfully and how to compose and frame your shots

What to bring

  • The camera + lenses you’re hoping to build a better relationship with!
  • If you are brand new to your camera/have rarely used it, it would be ideal if you could bring the instruction manual that came with your camera just in case
  • Make sure you have a clean memory card inside the camera
  • Your battery is 100% charged the night before the workshop
  • Notepad, pen
  • You will be walking offsite to shoot, so wear comfortable shoes
