Ideas Workshops announces its first basic photo workshop! Our cameras have given us the power to perform miracles; to capture precious moments forever. But a camera is nothing if the knowledge isn't there to back it up. We all take photos of our families, as they are the most important part of our life. And a large part of those photos come during our travels ("Travel"+"Family = "Travely" photos! :)). We can't recreate those moments; we can't say our photos weren't good enough; so, lets do the tour again! Thus, the only way is to know how to best utilise the camera in hand! This particular workshop, "Improve Your Travely Photos" concentrates on two points: 1. to know the basics of photography, and 2. to understand how to translate that knowledge into great family photographs while on travel! This workshop differs from other basic workshops in that it always talk about how you can utilise the camera to take better photos of your family.
The workshop would cover the following generic topics:
-Understanding the camera & photography in general
-Photos are too dark or too bright? (Understand exposure)
-Background blur? What is that? (Focal length, aperture, depth of field)
-Too many functions in your camera? (Understand camera controls)
-How do I get classy looking frames? (Basics of composition)
-When do I click the shutter? (Understand moment)
-Lost a lotta photos in the past? (Photo storage & management.)
b) Practice (optional)
-Critic session on assignment photos
The workshop is spread into two sessions. The first session (Theory) would cover most of the learning, and the second session (Practice) would be a critic session based on photos taken on a given assignment.
