• Class Time: 10am - 1pm
• Duration: 3 hours
• Meeting point: Botanical Gardens

You’ll 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 Alli Harper, 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 you’ll 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.

Join the Melbourne Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session and to take part in our free, fortnightly competitions!

Alli was a great teacher and explained everything in simple terms for my daughter and myself. The Botanical Gardens was a great place to be to find subject matter and experiment with the light.

4/5 by Athena Heater 👑
I really enjoyed being able to learn how to use a camera. I liked how we had group discussions and then were able to take photos at our own leisure by putting the knowledge learned into practice. I also appreciated the advice given by the leader when I was taking photos.

5/5 by Caoimhe Feeney
The photographer was excellent. She was down to earth and very personable, putting my son at ease immediately. She was extremely professional and helped my son to really enjoy and understand his camera. The venue was ideal for the type of instruction. From the very first email enquiry I made until we waved goodbye to the teacher, your organisation was efficient, effective and impressive. I would't hesitate recommending your organisation and we'll be a repeat customer for sure!
5/5 by Danielle Dall
I liked how the photographer used the surroundings to teach us a lesson eg. The shutter speed for moving images on the birds near the lake
