Compact Creatives (a workshop for point & shoot camera users)

You don't need to start with a mighty SLR camera to learn how to become a great photographer! So if you want to discover the tips and tricks to taking creative and quirky photos with a point and shoot or compact camera, then this 2 hour workshop in Covent Garden for you!

Attendees will get to:

  • Understand different modes and relevant settings on their cameras
  • Explore a number of composition techniques
  • Discover how to use the zoom lens creatively
  • Understand how to use flash effectively


All you need is a compact digital camera, preferably with a zoom.  If you have a Bridge Camera or a camera with full manual settings, you might prefer  our Beginners Photography "Walkshop", which you can read about here...


Original price: £25 price: £15

Time: 10:30-12:30pm

(Exact meetup location will be confirmed on booking)
