Event description

Description


Take to the streets of Freo, and learn how to see and shoot the world in black and white!

Level: Beginners - Intermediate
Instructor: Seng Mah
Location: West End Fremantle
Maximum participants: 12

Shooting black and white takes the distraction of colour out of your image-making and gets you to focus purely on observing light and tones, and to work your images using these two very simple, yet powerful, photographic observations.

Join Seng Mah for a journey into the black and white heart of Fremantle. In this hands-on, location-based workshop, you will learn:

  • How to set up your camera to shoot and show only black and white imagery.
  • The "sunny 16" rule that will help create strong, high-contrast images in full sunlight.
  • Pre-focusing using back-button focus (requires your camera to have back-button focus control).
  • Pre-focusing using manual focus (if your camera doesn't have back-button focus control).
  • Observing and noting light in the urban landscape.
  • Setting up and shooting for high-contrast lighting.
  • Compositional techniques when shooting in high-contrast or isolated lighting.
  • Finding and using incidental light on location.

As you can see, we have lots to cover and learn in this terrific street photography event!


WHAT YOU WILL NEED
  • Good walking shoes, a hat, bottle of water, sunscreen.
  • An interchangeable lens camera (DSLR or mirrorless).
  • Lens that will cover focal length ranges in the 24-70mm range (for full frame cameras); crop frame cameras would be in the 16-55mm range, with micro four third cameras (Olympus and Panasonic) in the 12-40mm range. You can also bring prime lenses or a telephoto zoom if you want to, but we will mainly focus on the wide angle zooms.
  • A small notebook and pen if you'd like to jot down notes at the start of this workshop.

* You don't need a tripod for this workshop.

This workshop is limited to only 12 participants. You will need to have a reasonable level of fitness as we will be walking fairly extensively around the West End and Harbour of Fremantle.
