About the workshop
The primary goal of this workshop is to learn about manual photography. It is best if you have a DSLR or a mirrorless camera, but phone cameras with manual capabilities will also work. You will learn about shutter speed, ISO, aperture, and how all three go hand in hand in taking a great photo. We will also cover low light and night sky photography, and some basics of shooting video.
This workshop is for those who are starting out as photographers and want to take it up professionally.
People who attend this course will leave with a better and more comprehensive understanding of how to use their camera to its fullest ability.
