Introduction to Photography Course: 21-22 Dec 2015

Join Sophie Patch of Africa Media for a practical training course on photography for beginners. When you understand what happens inside of your camera and the impact each of the controls has on the final image, you’ll be well on your way to creating the types of photographs you envision before you press the shutter.

Sophie clarifies each point with a series of simple illustrations designed to teach you what you need to know about ISO, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, and much more. By the end of the first day you’ll be ready to grab your camera and start putting these concepts into practice to take your photographs to the next level. That’s when there will be a class outing to shoot animals at the Harry Giddey Park in Mossel Bay. Here you will learn how to put your new skills into practice while Sophie is with you and can answer all your questions.
