This workshop is for anyone who would like to gain more creative control over their camera and photography. Getting out of manual mode seems like it involves a lot of time to figure out and many buttons to maneuver through. In this workshop, we’ll find all the need to know settings and get you familiar with what you have to do on your own camera. Once you have the basics down, you have the tools to control how you want to capture a subject.

The session will begin with a talk about the topics listed below. After the talk and a group Q&A session, the instructor will go around to ensure everyone has a handle on their own camera. We will also have access to the brewery section to take photos and practise what was covered during the talk.

Included in your registration is a pint of choice or if you prefer, a non-alcoholic beverage, and a selection of fine dining drinking food off Dandy’s exquisite menu*.

*If you have any dietary requests or restrictions that we should know about, please ensure you register and inform us by Sept 9th, 2019.
