Using shutter speed
How to correctly expose photos

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 (9am-12pm) 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.
Refund Policy: 5 days notice required for a full refund. Re-scheduling requires 2 days notice. In the case of bad weather (heavy rain) the class may be cancelled and you'll be given the option of rescheduling or a refund.

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
