The Aperture Club - www.theapertureclub.com.au


Workshop Format:
TUTORS: 1 or 2 professional Photographer (Sharon Hickey / Shane Rozario) depending on group size.
CLASS SIZE: Min 2 / Maximum 10
DAY OF OPERATION : Selected Sundays
TIME: 3PM to 5PM (2 hours) Please arrive 15 minutes before the workshop commences to ensure we start on time.

Suitability:
People who have completed 'Photography 1: Get to Know Your DSLR' and 'Photography 2: From AUTO to MANUAL' or those who already have a working knowledge of their camera and use of settings.


The Workshop:
Using your 'on camera' flash in photography can produce a variety of vibrant and strong imagery. Learning the 'in’s' and 'out’s' of your flash will assist you in creating well-exposed shots in any lighting condition. Learn why you don’t only use your flash in low light...
We explore the number one 'on camera' flash technique - how to use bounce flash to its best advantage and how to create different lighting effects with this process.
This workshop explores how to combine your camera controls with your flash output. When to use TTL mode and how to set your flash on manual. Again this gives you control of the final image rather than your camera and flash deciding on the outcome.

We also look at how to use your flash to create varied special effects that will enhance your images - such as using high speed sync settings and gels.
We will use flash to capture movement in long and fast shutter settings. Learn how to balance ambient light with flash to achieve a sense of atmosphere and mood in your pictures.
Learn what shutter speeds work best for most environments including outdoors and at night. We will also show you when to use second curtain flash technics and the effects they produce.
This course will not only allow you to develop creative photographic techniques, but will generally help you master photography in ways you never imagined. You'll wonder how you every survived without a flash in the past...

Detailed Aperture Club course notes will be emailed on completion of the photography workshop.

Camera Essentials Workshop for beginners of Photography. Take control of your photography and start having fun. This workshop will lift the lid on the mystery of photography and set your creativity free.

Modern digital cameras offer a daunting array of functions and possibilities. We won’t bombard you with loads of facts and technical information; we’re photographers ourselves, and we prefer a hands-on approach.
This workshop is based in the field, not in the studio, so we’ll be able to combine a little theory with lots of practical demonstrations and group exercises.
The journey begins with understanding your camera and learning how to navigate the controls and functions. You’ll learn about aperture, shutter speed, how to select the right lens and how to use it to create spectacular images. We’ll show you simple composition techniques to improve your photographs.
Then we’ll look at colour balance and how to produce different moods using the direction of light. We explain about ‘quality of light’ and how to use it to create mood and emotion.
You’ll see results by the end of the workshop, and will finish your first tutorial with confidence about how to handle camera to create images that go beyond the snapshot.


What does the workshop cover? introduction to your camera essential equipment selecting the right lens aperture settings shutter speed settings ISO settings colour balance manual mode settings composition rules and tips learning to see with a photographer’s eye light — the main ingredient, and how it works
