Class Time: Different times available - see dates below Duration: 3 hours
Meeting point: Botanic Gardens
Youll learn to use all the functions on your DSLR camera, and how to give your photos a professional quality. If you want to pursue a career in photography, this is a great class to kickstart your portfolio.
Taught by professional photographer Mark O'Reilly, the class will cover a range of technical aspects and you'll learn about: Aperture and depth of field
Using shutter speed
How to correctly expose photos
Using composition techniques
All about different focal lengths
Using white balance and colour
This is a very hands-on class, so youll have plenty of time to practise your new skills on the day and take lots of shots!
What to bring? A DSLR camera, or a camera with manual mode is preferable, but you may bring any kind of camera (with detachable or built-in lens). Please also be sure to bring plenty of memory cards and fully charged batteries. There will be a substantial amount of hands-on activity involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
What's involved? The three hour session will start with an introduction, before a series of mini challenges to help you get to grips with using your camera's settings. Class sizes are kept small (max 6 people) so each participant will have a chance to interact with the professional photographer on a one-to-one basis.

The overall course was very educational, Heidi was very helpful with any questions I had to ask, gave one on one with each student to make sure they were understanding each "chapter or exercise". The course was worth the $90, I would recommend it to others for sure 5/5 by Courtney Bryne 17-1-2016
