Camera Use

Camera Use - $165 pp for 2 hrs

We will go out into the field to learn about apertures, shutter speed, ISO, and other functions your camera has so that you, too, can capture potentially award winning images. 

Workshops

Photoshop Essentials - $525 pp for two days

Spread over two days you will learn the essentials of Photoshop so that you can get underway with your photographic enhancement. Topics such as layers, masks, adjustment layers, cropping, brushing, and clipping masks will be covered in a fun atmosphere with lots of exercises to complete.


Creative Techniques - $395 pp full day OR $495 pp for two days

Learn creative techniques to enable you to transform your photography into the realm of fine art. Using the concept of open exploration, you will be guided through several projects to open up a whole new world of creative possibilities.


Street Photography - $395 pp full day

What excites us about street photography – or photography in general- is work that takes us somewhere we’ve never been before: visually, emotionally, psychologically and sometimes physically. Come learn how to achieve this in the streets close to hand to you!

Food Photography - $525 pp full day

Love food?  Want to learn the lighting and capturing techniques to photograph your culinary delights to a professional level?  Then this workshop is for you.

There is an added enticement...you get to eat the food we use as our subjects so bring along an appetite!

+ $250 pp for half day processing of the food images captured.  This is performed on the following day. Optional.

Some post-production knowledge is required for these courses as the use of masks, layers and adjustment layers features heavily in each of the workshops.

The numbers are limited so that everyone has a chance to capture components of imagery for themselves and so that the tutor can see how well everyone is grasping a concept. It is held in a nurturing environment and the numbers are limited to encourage confidence and a sense of fun. No question or idea is a stupid one and full participation is required of everyone so you all get something from the workshop.


Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via the Contact page.  We are here to assist you!
