PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS : LIGHT & COMPOSITION

This is a beginner focused workshop where you will learn the basics of exposure, camera settings and composition so that you can start taking photographs more intentionally. Even if you are only taking family photographs these are memories you are creating for life and it is important for you to determine the exposure settings and composition quickly and accurately.

We will spend some time learning the theory & concepts and then practice on three setups that I have created that will put all the concepts to test!
