Other Exciting Stuff:

Workshops

Our workshops are designed for beginners – to teach them all the basics about photography.

This week, we will begin running Workshop A – Exposure. This workshop is a simple introduction on how a camera works. It familiarises you with the exposure triangle, which includes aperture, ISO and shutter speed, and how to use the camera to manipulate them.

Workshop B – Focus will begin running this week. It will give you a complete breakdown of how a camera focuses, its different focus modes and how to use them to your advantage. We will also be covering some other basics including depth of field, dynamic range and white balance.

Workshop C – Composition will commence next week. It will explore composition believe it or not – showing you how to turn nice photos into great ones!

The workshop times will be posted in the UNSW PhotoClub 2017 Facebook group – join it here if you haven’t already! And message the Facebook page if you have any issues.
