Camera & Composition

Sunday 23rd September 2018

TPOTY Photo Iconic London Workshop

London Queen's Walk

Are you confused by your camera or frustrated that you can't get the photographs you want?

Composition is the element of photography which can make or break an image but an essential part of this is understanding your camera.

On this workshop we'll de-mystify your camera, show you which are the important controls you'll need to master to improve your photography, and which of the many and confusing menu functions you can ignore. 

Suddenly your camera becomes a simple, fun, creative tool! This sets you free to be more creative and allows you to concentrate on the art and craft of making better pictures.

Confidence with your camera means better images. So once you understand your camera controls, all those images which didn't look as you expected them to will be a thing of the past.

You'll be surprised how simple photography is and how quickly your images will improve as we help you to understand how to control focus, depth of field and exposure, then bring these together with the basic elements of composition to improve your images.

Our objective is to help you use whatever camera you have and allow both your confidence and creativity to blossom.

The locations we use are specially chosen to provide good photographic opportunities, varied and changing light and help you to build your photographic skills and confidence. 

During the workshop we'll help you individually as well as giving group tuition. 

We believe that photography should be fun so there'll be plenty of laughs along the way.

Where does the course start?

This photography course will start ay Hays Galleria, London Bridge, London at 11am and finish between 4.30 and 5.30pm.
