Photography For Beginners

Two Day Workshop


Professional photographer and picture editor, Vanessa Miles, will be running this in-depth two day course introducing digital SLR Photography. Participants ideally should have their own camera and will be learning about technical aspects which will include understanding apertures, shutter speeds and ISO’s as well as artistic aspects exploring what makes good composition and how to make the best use of natural light. This is a very practical course, which includes taking pictures, downloading and editing them on the day. Please bring a few examples of your photography along to the first session. This will be an action packed, fun few days, allowing you to better understand your camera.

Places are limited to 6 people so early booking is recommended.

Workshop attendees get 10% off all food and hot drinks at the Café Bar.
