Workshop Timings: 10 AM to 5:30 PM on both days.
On arrival at the venue, workshop instructor Phillip Ross will welcome all participants and will present an introduction to digital photography to help your child understand the basics such as camera formats, megapixels, understanding your camera body, lenses, focal length and camera accessories.
Once your child has a good grasp of the basics, Phillip will turn to the core aspect of photography – EXPOSURE. We will briefly discuss the exposure triangle and exposure program modes before lunch.
After lunch, Phillip will help your child master Aperture, Shutter, ISO and Exposure Compensation using the various program modes such as Manual, Aperture priority and Shutter priority. Your child will certainly have a better grasp of and feel more confident with their cameras after this session.
It’s practice time, and Phillip will lead all participants into the venue’s beautiful garden to practice what they’ve learnt so far during the workshop. The garden is a perfect place to try out exposure compensation and metering.
We end day one of the workshop with some invaluable tips and tricks.
On day two, Phillip will first bring everyone up to speed by summarising the previous day’s sessions before we begin to learn all there is to know about focussing, where Phillip will provide instruction on manual focus, autofocus, autofocus points and focus modes.
After a great time learning focussing, it’s time for a topic that everyone finds quite fascinating – depth of field (DOF). Your child will learn about the various aspects that influence depth of field and learn how to capture images with a shallow or deep depth of field.
Your child will now be taught how to master photographing in the dark with a fun session on low light and night photography. Using the bulb mode, your child will love learning about light painting and all that it needs to take to practice star trail photography, lightning photography etc.
Phillip will now present some of his finest images and talk about composition, and help your child showcase their work a lot more efficiently.
As the workshop winds to a close, Phillip will help your child understand topics such as sharpness, image stabilization, white balance, using filters, best practices of photography, cleaning and maintenance and buying equipment.
He will clear everyone’s doubts with a question-and-answer session and a final rendezvous before bidding adieu
