Introduction to Photography & Storytelling
Whether you are a mum hoping to take better photos of your kids, a dad who’d like to be able to capture the beauty of family life as it is right now, or a free spirit looking to brush-up your photography skills for your own personal or business goals, this masterclass is for you. Our introduction to photography takes you straight into mastering the manual mode of your camera through language and illustrations you can easily understand. We explore the technical elements behind exposure, while teaching you to observe light and composition to create meaningful imagery. Storytelling is also introduced through an exploration of emotional connection between you and your subject, and we trust that this masterclass will leave you confident to tell your story through the lens.
