Today’s DSLR cameras offer vast photographic opportunities – if you know how to use them and you understand light. Get started with your DSLR camera with professional photographers Karen Castle and Karin Calvert. This course teaches – in easy, clear terms – how to use the settings on your camera so you can progress to the next level of creative photography.

In the morning session Karen will explain the basics: aperture, shutter speed, ISO and how to achieve correct exposure. In the afternoon, Karin will show you how to use natural light and camera flash techniques to create great portraits. In this full-day course there will be time to put into practice your new skills, with the instructors there to guide you through a location-based practical/shoot.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Aperture
  • Depth of field
  • Shutter speed
  • ISO
  • Using the light meter
  • Focusing
  • Lighting techniques

Bring your DSLR camera, manual, fully charged battery and memory card.

If you have an external flash, bring that along too.

This course is held at The University Club of Western Australia and lunch will be provided and is included in the cost.
