Our 3 hour, practical, public, camera training, workshop tour... is a fun and relaxed way for starting your DSLR photography training at Aberdeen's most significant and impressive Granite City Landmarks!
The tour is designed to give you first hand experience and instructions from local experienced photographers, whilst guiding you around Aberdeen City's most famous and prominent city landmarks.
We'll guide your through the basics of how to control the speed of your camera's shutter, the amount of light your camera lets in, the aperture and your camera's sensitivity to light ISO.
Learning how to control these 3 key ELEMENTS will help you create the perfect picture during your visit to the Granite City. This is just what our tour is all about!
The three photographic elements are:
- ISO – the measure of a digital camera sensor or films sensitivity to light
- Aperture – the size of the opening in the lens when a picture is taken
