We begin the online workshop, with your instructor welcoming 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.
- The Program Dial
- Introduction to Exposure
Now that your child has a good grasp of the basics, we will turn to the core aspect of photography – EXPOSURE. We will briefly discuss the exposure triangle and exposure program modes.
Once they have completely understood both the modes, we close the day giving the students a small assignment for the next day.
- Mastering Exposure
- Exposure Compensation
- The Right Camera Mode
Today is all about mastering 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 photography and feel more confident with their cameras after this session.
We end day one of the workshop with some invaluable tips and tricks.
- Bulb Mode
- Depth of Field
We 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 metering and then focussing, where we will provide instruction on manual focus, autofocus, autofocus points and focus modes.
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.
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.
They are again given a small assignment for the next day before ending the session.
- Camera maintenance
We will also present some of our finest images and talk about composition, and help your child showcase their work a lot more efficiently.
As the workshop winds to a close, we 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.
We will clear everyone’s doubts with a question-and-answer session and a final rendezvous before bidding adieu.
