Looking to improve your photography? Our Beginners Class is a great place to start. This 3 hour session is a photo walk that will have you weaned off of Auto mode, and transforming your everyday snaps into professional-looking shots.

The class is ideal for those who are complete beginners who want to get more out of their camera!

Taught by professional photographer Chloe, the class will cover a range of technical aspects and you'll learn about:
• How to correctly expose photos
• Using composition techniques
• All about different focal lengths
• Using white balance and colour
• Aperture and depth of field for focus
• Using shutter speed to capture action

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 - we'll be taking lots of photos! There will be a substantial amount of hands-on activity 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 Sydney Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session and to take part in our free, fortnightly competitions!

Chloe was a great instructor. She was very knowledgeable about photography. She was willing to help everyone individually with whatever questions they may of had. I like that she gave us time to explore the spa...
