Booking for this workshop
NB: The form below takes you to the website photographyworkshops.co.nz
For this workshop, booking is not done through the PhotocourseNZ website
The planned dates are Saturday 13th January and Saturday 17th February, 2018.
These workshops will tie in with Adobe Lightroom workshops (also run by NZ Photography Workshops, at Photospace), where you can learn to edit and optimise your photographs.
Booking and payment will be done through the NZ Photography Workshops site.
If you have a group of friends or colleagues who're interested in learning the basics of good photography, this workshop could be run on demand at a later date as a package deal for everyone. Please ask.
The Introductory Creative Photography Workshop will cover:
Bring along your own digital SLR digital camera, mirrorless interchangable lens camera, and a tripod if you have one. Dress for outdoors.
The plan is to meet at Photospace for a coffee and a run through setting up and understanding the main creative controls of your camera. Then we'll meet out aat the cafe on Makara Beach for a bit more photography talk over lunch.
Photographing around Makara beach and Makara township in the afternoon will give you ample opportunity to convert photographic theory into practice, and you'll get help and feedback as you need it.
There will be a follow-up time to review your photos and receive feedback - the Monday evening after the Saturday workshop, 5.30pm to approx. 7.30pm. This is a good opportunity to view and discuss each others' photos and receive feedback, and also to recap the basic principals shown on the outdoor workshop day.
This is intended as something of a crash course in creative photography. For a more extensive and comprehensive course, Photocourse 1 is recommended. New Zealand Photography Workshops also run a range of more advanced outdoor photo workshops that you will enjoy, once you have the ability to use your camera functions to achieve full creative control. From that point on, you can enjoy making photographs turn out the way you envisage them, and follow your own visual creative pathway instead of just following others and taking look-alike photos.
Please book early, as places on these workshops are quite limited. Booking form is above.
