Event description

Description

Are you struggling to get the best out of your SLR? So many of us have a great camera but aren’t sure how to use it beyond auto mode - and this informal workshop will help you begin to do just that, whether you’d like to take better pictures for your small business or social media, or capture gorgeous memories for your family albums. Professional interior and lifestyle photographer Cathy Pyle will share some valuable tips and show you how to use aperture and shutter speed effectively. By the end of the session you’ll have the confidence to switch your camera off auto and begin to harness your camera’s full potential.

Starting in the Summerhouse, we’ll look at the principles of using manual mode on your SLR and how aperture and shutter speed can be used in different ways. Then you’ll get to put your new skills into practice by working on some still-life compositions in our Shepherd’s Hut. Finally back to the Summerhouse to discuss and troubleshoot your images, with plenty of time for your questions. Workshop spaces are strictly limited to a max of 6 people per session so you’ll benefit from a focused and intimate session.

Light refreshments will be provided. You're welcome to arrive from 9.30 am for tea/coffee and an informal chat before we start.
