- Introduction to Digital Photography
- Cameras, Lenses & Accessories
- Working & Understanding of your camera
We begin the workshop, with your instructor welcoming all participants and will present an introduction to digital photography to help your child understand the basics such as camera formats, megapixels, understanding your camera body, lenses, focal length, camera accessories and how the camera works.
- The Program Dial
- Introduction to Exposure
- Mastering Exposure
Now that your child has a good grasp of the basics, we will turn to the core aspect of photography – EXPOSURE. We will briefly discuss the exposure triangle and exposure program modes.
Once they have understood the basics of exposure, we will teach them how to shoot images using the Manual Mode and Aperture Priority Mode.
Once they have completely understood both the modes, we close the day giving the students a small assignment for the next day.
- Exposure Compensation
- Depth of Field
Today is all about mastering exposure compensation and focussing, where we will provide instruction on manual focus, autofocus, autofocus points and focus modes.
It’s time for a topic that everyone finds quite fascinating – depth of field (DOF). Your child will learn about the various aspects that influence depth of field and learn how to capture images with a shallow or deep depth of field.
Your child will certainly have a better grasp of photography and feel more confident with their cameras after this session.
We end day one of the workshop with some invaluable tips and tricks.
- Camera maintenance
We start the day by summarising what was taught the previous day. We now present some of our finest images and talk about composition, and help your child showcase their work a lot more efficiently.
As the workshop winds to a close, we will help your child understand topics such as sharpness, image stabilisation, best practices of photography and cleaning and maintenance.
We will clear everyone’s doubts with a question-and-answer session and a final rendezvous before bidding adieu.
