Digital Photography Workshop

This 4 hour workshop is structured to help you get to grips with the basics of digital photography and learn how to use your digital SLR camera in manual mode.

The first part of the workshop will be in group discussion and activities with visual examples on how you can take control of your camera and the basic techniques on how to use it properly, including exploring “light” and exposure using ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings.

You will also learn the methods of composing your pictures helping you to create a more dynamic photograph.

We will then move outdoors into the beautiful Powis Castle Park to practice these new found skills. Jargon will be kept to a minimum and the focus will be on taking better photographs in a practical and fun environment.
