Looking to improve your photography? Our Beginners Class is a great place to start. This 3 hour session is a photo walk that will have you weaned off of Auto mode, and transforming your everyday snaps into professional-looking shots.

The class is ideal for those who are complete beginners who want to get more out of their camera!

Taught by professional photographer Karen, the class will cover a range of technical aspects and you'll learn about:
• How to correctly expose photos
• Using composition techniques
• All about different focal lengths
• Using white balance and colour
• Aperture and depth of field for focus
• Using shutter speed to capture action

This is a very hands-on class, so you’ll have plenty of time to practise your new skills on the day and take lots of shots!

• What to bring?
A DSLR camera, or a camera with manual mode is preferable, but you may bring any kind of camera (with detachable or built-in lens). Please also be sure to bring plenty of memory cards and fully charged batteries - we'll be taking lots of photos! There will be a substantial amount of hands-on activity on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.

• What's involved?
The three hour session will start with an introduction, before a series of mini challenges to help you get to grips with using your camera's settings. Class sizes are kept small (max 6 people) so each participant will have a chance to interact with the professional photographer on a one-to-one basis.

Join the Perth Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session and to take part in our free competitions!

It was terrific! The class covered exactly what I needed to know, without overloading me with too much information. Being able to learn by doing was perfect for me. The instructor, Karen, was very good at explaining things.

Fantastic class for learning the basics of taking a photo and learning about your camera. I would highly recommend taking this session. You get an awesome teacher who can provide lots of tricks and tips, plus has a lot of patience. Great constructive feedback on photos. I was so impressed with my efforts and will stay in manual mode for ever.

It was nice having a small group as you felt that you had enough time to ask your question and that the Presenter didn't have to rush through with the answer or the help that you needed.
