Beginner Basics Photography Workshop

Do you own a DSLR (a digital camera with removable lens), but use it like a point-and-shoot?
Then I've designed this course for you!

I'll work with you to unlock the mysteries of your camera,
and take you from driving your camera like a Toyota, to enjoying it more like a Ferrari!
I'll coach you from shooting in programme mode, to being comfortable in manual mode.

You will learn how to use ISO, aperture, shutter-speed, focal length, light manipulation,
and basic composition techniques to deliberately & intentionally create images that wow!

LIGHT PAINTING  Photography Workshop

You'll need a DSLR (digital camera with removable lens) for this fun evening workshop
(and a tripod would be super handy if you can access one).

You'll learn to CREATE images in the dark, 
while learning so much about making your camera work for you!
You'll discover bulb mode, manual focus, and more,
while using torches, gels, sparklers and spark poi.

Early Bird Special:   Book & pay before 31st July   just $55


Just like the big dollops of endorphins I get from Seido karate and running,
taking photographs is soul-food for me - capturing a moment, something beautiful,
birds, animals, the sea and the sky ... it's all therapy!
But I muddle my way through when it comes to the technicalities of my Rolls Royce of a camera!
So, last night this happened ....!
With a little group of keen photographers, I did my best to soak up all that photographer Sandra Johnson
could share with us in just a couple of hours - and boy, it went by quickly!
The best bit was heading out into the night to play in the park.
SO much fun!
Thanks for the Light Painting Photography Workshop, Sandra Johnson Boutique Photography!
