Introduction to Photography

This beginners workshop introduces the fundamentals of photography during a walking tour of the beautiful Balboa Park. If you just bought a camera or are new to photography and want to learn how to take beautiful photos, this workshop is for you. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of exposure and composition techniques that will open the door to endless photographic possibilities. This is a hands on learning experience and a wonderful opportunity to capture beautiful photos of one of San Diego's most scenic areas under the instruction of experienced professional photographers.

This workshop will cover:

How cameras work

Camera controls and functions

Lenses

Filters & Accessories

The importance of light

Using shutter speed to control motion

Using aperture to control depth of field

Metering modes

White balance

Basic composition techniques

 

This workshop takes place outdoors and involves a little walking, so we recommend that you dress comfortably.

Don't forget to bring your camera, charged batteries, and memory cards.

We recommend that you have a DSLR camera or an advanced point and shoot camera with shutter priority and aperture priority modes. We do not rent equipment.

      Usually a few people will drop out the day of the workshop so your chances of getting a spot are good.
