FUNDAMENTALS OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Fundamentals is designed for beginners or for those reconnecting with photography.
The Aperture Club believes the way to learn is to move out of the classroom and into the field. All of our training is practical hands-on combined with theory.
With us you’ll be inspired and challenged.
Fundamentals is held over 3 consecutive weeks, with each 4 hr session covering a stepping stone on the foundations of photography. The 4 hr components can also be taken separately at your own pace…
- Week 1 Camera Essentials
Learn camera handling, menu navigation and shooting modes and how to work with light, the camera’s shortcuts and focusing techniques.
- Week 2 Mastering Manual
Understand the relationship between shutter speed, aperture and ISO. We teach you how to construct and execute exposure from the ground up. This is where you start to take creative control.
- Week 3 All About Composition
Discover how to create a well-composed picture and how to communicate your intended message clearly and effectively. Composition is about ‘finding your photographic eye’.
