Photography for beginners

Lancaster Friends Meeting House

11th May 2019 from 10am to 3pm


This course is ideal for beginners, who already have camera and want to improve their photography skills beyond simple point and shoot photography.
The course will explain basic camera settings and composition rules. We will go beyond automatic camera settings and picture modes.


After this workshop you will know how to set the camera to nicely blur the background in your photographs, how to make that milky effect of waterfalls, how different lenses and different point of view change the mood of the picture, and more.

You will need to bring your own camera for this course.
