Local professional photographer David Charles Mason’s philosophy is simple: no matter what the camera is, the fundamentals of photography are universal. Once you have mastered the basics, you can apply them to whatever area of photography that you want to explore. David imparts simple techniques to improve your photography and increase your confidence in using your camera, through a mixture of hands-on, lectures and live demonstrations in these fun and friendly workshops:
A Photography Introduction (Part 1)
This class will cover a broad range of topics related to basic photography principles, outlining common camera features & their use, with a mixture of theory & practical demonstrations. It is split into two separate sessions run on separate days. For those new to photography, it is recommended that the Part 1 class is attended first.
A Photography Introduction (Part 2)
Following on from Part 1, we look at more advanced camera functions such as histograms & exposure compensation. Attendees are encouraged to apply the basic principles learnt, to their own cameras (with support).
Opportunity to explore, discuss and look in depth at the elements of a black & white image in comparison to a colour image & alter these just by using the camera functions.
