Managing your camera

In this workshop you will take the first step in your photography journey, cultivating  a solid understanding of how to control your camera using the manual mode.

You will discover how to instinctively manage and combine the fundamental concepts in photography: aperture, shutter speed and sensitivity, from a creative perspective.

After an introduction to the theory, you will have plenty of time for practising your new skills and asking questions.

The workshop will take place at Barbican Centre, an iconic and inspiring place in London.

The following week I will send you clear notes and a short test to check your progress.

After completing this workshop you will have forgotten the automatic mode, and be ready to jump into creative photography.
