Introduction to digital photography workshop

This is the perfect workshop for those who want to get into the digital photography world. You’ll learn all about digital techniques, as well as things related to a more artistic side of photography, like composition, which is, I think, the most important thing to keep in mind when taking a picture.

Objectives

With this workshop, my goal is to make sure every participant get to know about the different rules of image composition so they can create photographs by following or creating them at will.

Every participant will learn about the different configurations these devices offer as well as the use of a digital camera in full manual mode. With these resources, they will get to take that picture they have in their head without any issues and making sure they can truly show what they are envisioning when taking a photograph.

The workshop is for people who

  • Have little or no knowledge about photography, or self-taught people who need to put in order all that knowledge they acquired by themselves.
  • Have a camera with manual mode. That way you’ll get the most out of the workshop.
