• Class Time: Varies - see individual dates below • Duration: 3 hours
• Meeting point: Starting at Circular Quay, outside the Museum of Contemporary Art.
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 Zac Alviz, 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.

My nephew had a wonderful time, thought the course was very informative and thought Zac was a great instructor who spent a lot of time with all the students.
He has come away from the course with much more confidence in using Manual Mode on his camera
