What is ‘on Manual in Melbourne?’
It’s mostly tecchi, a bit creative, 2 hours, 8 people max, exploring awesome places around Melbourne with your DSLR camera. It’s designed to get all your niggling photo questions answered hands-on with a real live human that lives and breathes photography every day (that’s me…). We cover ISO, aperture, shutter speed, metering and achieving correct exposure, along with other random stuff that comes up too.
Who’s it for?
If you have a digital SLR camera that has full manual mode and you’re currently using semi or full auto modes, but you’d like to get your head around manual shooting, then this is for you.
What to bring?
Your DSLR camera with fully charged battery
Empty memory card
Your camera’s manual in your back pocket (we may need it to look up specific settings for you)
The usual dose of creativity and passion for photography
Notepad and pen can be handy as we cover a lot of info
Who is Beth exactly?
Glad you asked! I’m a practising professional photographer that specialses in storytelling using available light. I hold a BA (Commercial Art) Photography degree from RMIT, I’m an Associate with the AIPP, and I have 3 years experience in running full-day camera workshops.
I’ve been running photo-wandering events in Melbourne as well as with a similar group overseas and members often want to ask me specific questions. In the large groups it’s impossible to get stuck in, so I decided to set up dedicated events where we can solely focus on your tecchie needs.
‘Had a great time and helped connect the dots….. :-)’ Shelley
‘The workshop was excellent! Great location, beautiful weather and Beth’s tips were very easy to understand and work a treat! I got some amazing shots, and now can use manual settings intentionally, rather than hit and miss. Thanks Beth!’ Andrew
‘Great workshop! I got answers to all my questions. Thanks Beth for sharing your knowledge!’ Chirantha
What’s it cost?
$59 per person – groups are limited to 8 so to be fair to all this fee is non-refundable, non-transferrable and payable at signup. You also receive a PDF summary afterwards on what we covered.
We go ahead rain or shine – if the weather is really poor then we’ll find a nearby pub. The main thing is that we cover all the content which we can do easily around a table too.
The plan for Fitzroy Gardens
We’ll meet at Cooks’ Cottage and meander our way around Fitzroy Gardens. With the leaves changing it should be a lovely mix of colour and history in one. We’ll finish up back at the Cottage (tripods/flash not required).
Saturday 4 May
See you there!
