Beginners Workshop – Week 2
Once again there was a packed room as the crowds returned for the second of Ken Fisher’s Beginners’ Workshops. It was very encouraging to see most of those from week one plus some first time attendees all waiting eagerly for Ken to build on the the previous weeks gentle introduction. Having established that our cameras only see light and that we must all learn to see the light to be able to take better photographs Ken’s agenda this week was to cover Types of Camera and Lens, Focus, The Image, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Camera Modes, White Balance and ISO.
Using a mixture of presentation, anecdotes, jokes and practical demonstrations Ken clearly explained that no matter whether you are using a compact camera or the latest digital gadgetry the principles are the same and if you learn the basics of this weeks topics you will soon be able to get your photographs sharp, correctly exposed, with the desired depth of field that accurately represent the colours you remember when you took the picture.
In week three Ken will talk about composition ‘the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole’. Don’t miss the grand finale, arrive early as there is bound to be a full house.
