During this workshop we investigate a series of locations that are specially chosen to demonstrate various aspects of photography which include shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, light & composition among many others, before we finish the session with a look at low light and long exposure photography towards the evening. If you’re using a bridge or compact camera, we fully explore all the options that you have onboard to take better photos. If you’re using a phone camera, we can also look at creative apps that give you more control of your camera and we can also take some time out to edit our images using onboard and other editing apps.
