Saturday the 25th of November 2017
Backlighting & Portraits - Hallett Cove Beach at 10am
Students will learn how to use backlighting to their advantage when taking photos of people.
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 share your photos with your peers on the Photoh Facebook wall and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes. There's also an Adelaide Photography Facebook Group where members can exchange photography tips, ask questions, receive constructive criticism on photos and discuss upcoming group events.
It was good to get away from our usual city haunts and see interest in other areas we may otherwise not see. And I am looking forward to the next session at Hallet Cove for the same reason. nice group prepared to share knowledge, Cheers, Danny 5/5 by Danny Ferguson 12-11-2017

A great morning at Glenelg; perfect weather, and plenty of summer lifestyle photo opportunities to be had. Thanks Kathy🌞 5/5 by Karen Philips 21-1-2017
This was great for a casual get together to meet other photographers.
The instructor was welcoming and approachable. I was approached a few times throughout the session to see how I was going and given the chance to ask questions.
Loved how you have the facebook page to share the photos from the day.
Enjoyed myself, thank you. 4/5 by Jaymie Clausen 13-11-2016

Another great session with our host Kathy 5/5 by Karen Philips 4-9-2016
Excellent! Maurizio was a last minute stand in for Kathy, our usual host for shooting in harsh/direct light - not only was he very knowledgable on Adelaide Zoo and its showcase animals - he was also particularly good and patient at describing how to get quality shots of the animals considering the light, cages, glass, wire mesh etc.. 5/5 by David Munro 22-8-2016

Kathy did a great job of introducing us to the technicalities of the histogram before we set of to take photos on a very dull day in Glenelg. Thanks Kathy

This lesson was the first I have been to which had a 'creative' topic. It made me think hard about the lessons I have been to recently on shutter speed, aperture and depth of field, and to try to use the technical concepts I had learned to create something special. Kathy had a big class to work with, with a wide range of skills. She did a great job of checking in with each of us to ensure we were comfortable with what we were doing and to answer any queries we had. Great job Kathy, thank you. 5/5 by Sally A McLennan 30-5-2016
Fun way to learn about using your camera in the art of story telling at a great location.
Thanks Kathy :) 5/5 by Karen philips 29-5-2016
