Rules of Composition - Hyde Park
Learn all about how to compose better photos by using various rules and strategies within photography.
Each two hour class will focus on one theme or particular aspect of photography, in a different location each fortnight. A professional photographer will also be there to help answer questions and offer advice on the day. Groups larger than 12 will have multiple instructors.
Please note that this event is a social meet up (not a formal class) and is best suited to photographers who want the opportunity to explore different photography topics every fortnight and know how to use their cameras on manual mode (not total beginners). If you are after a more structured educational experience, Photoh also offers a Photography for Beginners course that is conducted in a smaller group, so you have more opportunity to interact with your instructor one-on-one.
The minimum age requirement is 10 years old; children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult, who will need to make a separate booking. General attendance costs $35, but may occasionally be higher if a model, studio hire or special equipment is required.
A DSLR camera, or a camera with manual controls is preferable, but you are welcome to bring bring any kind of camera or smartphone. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos with your peers on the Photoh Facebook wall and in the Sydney Photography Facebook Group and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes.

It was interesting to explore the concept of abstract photography in the field. Thank you Nick and Adam for the great support during the day. 4/5 by Ann Hodgson 6-12-2016
This event made you think deeply in how to produce abstract images. Images created can also be manipulated by use of Photoshop and Illustrator. To me, this is my challenge as I have won National and International Awards throughout my working photography. 4/5 by John Cleasby 5-12-2016
Challenging and fun - abstract is an interesting subject that I wouldn't normally think too much about. 4/5 by Tracey 4-12-2016

Nick & Adam provided great advice and our gorgeous model Elena provided great subject material (& patience, dealing with a large group of us paparazzi!) 5/5 by Kathy Wallace 23-10-2016
This was my first portrait session and it was certainly worthwhile. Nick put a lot of effort into finding us different lighting so we could practise under a variety of conditions. Elena, the model, was wonderful. It was a great opportunity to put theory into practice! 4/5 by Ann Hodgson 23-10-2016
