Getting Off Auto - This full day photography workshop has been specifically designed for those that want to get off auto and get on with great photography. Pamela will explain the basics of your DSLR, show you some simple techniques and talk to you individually about your camera settings. Pamela will make sure everyone gets individual attention.

  • Session 1 - 9:00am - Meet at the Broome Community Resource Centre for a ‘Getting to Know your Camera’ classroom session to kick off the day. Here we’ll go through camera settings in depth and really look at what your camera is capable of.
  • 10:30am - Morning tea
  • Session 2 - 10:45am - This session will explain and demystify those ‘other’ settings on your camera. You’ll learn about depth of field, shutter speed, ISO, focus points, metering and much more, Easy things for the experts but quite daunting to people new to digital photography.
  • 12:30pm – Lunch break
  • Session 3 - 1.30pm – After lunch we’ll head off for a photo walkabout. You’ll learn the best settings for particular circumstances and put some of the mornings’ theory into practice.
  • Session 4 - 3:00 pm – Back to the classroom and you’ll see the fruits of your labour. We’ll upload some of the images from the shoot and go through some basic editing skills to get you started on enhancing your images.
