Photography Basics – A Workshop for Novice Photographers
October 22 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Photography is a fun hobby. That’s one of the reasons you joined GNPA. But if you are new to photography, then you have questions, lots of them. There are things you don’t understand and don’t know where to turn for help. And then there are the things you don’t know that you don’t know. It can be challenging to learn photography well enough to feel confident about using your camera beyond Auto mode and being able to take photos that you are proud to share. We want to help you.
Specifically, we have a group of seasoned photographers who have been where you are now and are willing to lend a helping hand, offer a word of encouragement, and give some free advice. They will share some of their favorite personal photos and backstories on them as well.
What to expect at the GNPA PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS workshop.
– Getting off Auto mode and exploring other modes
– Introducing the exposure triangle
– Tripods and other non-camera gear
– Places to practice your nature photography
– Continuing education and skill sharpening
– The opportunity to shoot with your instructors
