Event Details

The perfect starting point to get you off shooting "Auto"!

Level: Absolute Beginner
Instructor: Seng Mah
Maximum participants: 10

You love photography and have a great camera, but are struggling to understand how to use it beyond just the simple Auto mode. You've come to the right place!

"Beginner's Digital Photography" is designed for the person who is an absolute beginner to digital photography and who would like to know more about how to best use their camera, so that they can take better photographs of family, kids, friends, pets, sports and other life events. Being able to photograph and record the people and moments in your life is very important and this beginner's workshop will take you on your first steps into photography!

We start with the basics -- by getting you to become familiar and comfortable with your camera, and then we take you through the key camera controls that will let you get more creative in your photography.

You will gradually get off the "Auto Mode" and start exploring some of the functions of your camera that let you control how your photographs appear. It's the best and most fun two and a half hours you'll spend where you learn by shooting and exploring what your camera can do! 


  • Great tips for camera operation.
  • Choosing the best Picture Quality for your shooting needs.
  • White balance: How to get the colours right in your photos.
  • ISO: Configuring your camera to shoot in different lighting conditions.
  • Depth of field: Shooting for soft vs sharp backgrounds.
  • Focus control: How to nail your focus each and every shot.
  • Getting sharp images in low light.
  • The best lenses for different styles of photography.
  • Compositions that work.
  • Shooting movement: How to get sharp images of moving subjects.
  • Why image stabilisation is important and how to use it.
  • Exposure control: How to get brighter or darker images when you shoot.

It's a jam-packed workshop, filled with activities and exercises to help you gain confidence in using your camera!
