How to compose an image considering framing and viewpoint.
Working with light and shade.
Using the right settings for different situations.
Taking action shots.
Using props and backgrounds.
Tips and tricks that the professionals use.
After this course you will see a difference in the photos you take - everyone improves.
You will also take home some amazing photos which youíll be proud to hang in your wall.
What you need to bring:
Fully charged camera or smartphone, with enough space to take plenty of photos. Itís a good idea to bring a portable phone charger if you have one. For cameras we recommend clearing (formatting) your memory card before the class.
A blanket large enough to accommodate everyone attending as part of your booking. You may also wish to bring a smaller blanket for your child to use as a prop.
Food and drink - this is a picnic after all!
Some props will be provided however we encourage you to bring your childís favourite toy / dress up outfit / any props that you would like to use.
There are plenty of shaded areas in the park, but we do advise that you come prepared with sunscreen and hats.
Each family is limited to 2 adults and up to 3 children (or just Mum & bub is fine!). For any extras please call 1300 58 85 35.
The cost is just $59 per family which is astounding value considering the usual cost of photography classes, and professional family photographs. This is a bargain!
