Photography for Everyday Storytelling

Learn how to capture the everyday, better.

At Photography for Everyday Storytelling, we’ll talk about composition & framing, practising mindfulness in photography and more, so that you can create your best photograph in any moment. This also includes a refresher on the basics of manual shooting.

Basic photography knowledge is needed. A recap on technical terms such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO is given at the start of class, as this workshop provides practice for shooting in manual.

for Everyday Storytelling!*Shooting in manual is not 100% required or mandatory, but this workshop is structured for dSLRs and cameras with manual settings, so you’ll get the most out of this workshop if you bring a camera that has manual modes.
