Duration: 3 hours
Meeting point: Circular Quay, outside the Museum of Contemporary Art
Cameras, their functions and all their accessories can be overwhelming if you’re not already familiar with them. Learn how to use your camera to capture moments, events, and people in your everyday life.
The class will cover a range of technical aspects, including aperture, shutter speed and ISO, amongst other photography principles. You’ll also cover focal length and lenses, lighting and correct exposure.
This class takes you on a walking tour around Sydney, starting from the lawn outside the Museum of Contemporary Art, so you can practise in different surroundings. By the end of the class, you’ll have the confidence to apply your new skills in a variety of situations.
Participants are required to bring the following to the class:
Digital camera that has a manual settings option
Fully charged batteries (and spares if possible)
Blank image cards (two or more, formatted if possible)
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella or a hat should the weather call for it.
Let Photoh help you create beautiful moments with every click of the shutter.If you'd like to book for a date that's not listed we can arrange a private class or group class to suit your needs.

I loved the personalisation of this course and how our instructor took the time to ensure everyone had the same experience, no matter what camera they had. Some of the more technical aspects that were covered, which probably went beyond this level, were actually really helpful and helped me understand my camera much better than I even have 5/5 by Laura White 9-6-2017
