Introduction To Photography

One Day Workshop

Saturday 23 November 2019

Sometimes all you want, is to go over the basics.  


You want to learn how to get out of AUTO and finally take control over your camera.


Learning to use a camera is a bit like learning to drive.  


At first, you have to master the pedals, the gear changes, the indicators and mirror.  There's a learning curve that everyone has to go through before they pass their test and are able to drive their car safely anywhere they want.


It's the same with photography.  It also has a learning curve and it has a similar pain barrier that everyone has to go through if they want to take that camera anywhere they want, to use it creatively and instinctively.


You drive your car without thinking about the controls... so it should be with your camera.



Is this you?

  • You recently bought a camera and the controls look daunting

  • You've had a camera for a while and just haven't got round to fully exploring its potential

  • You have become increasingly disappointed with your photos and you're looking for a solution

  • You feel there's more to taking photos than what you're doing at the moment, and you'd like some help to take control of the camera to get consistency in your images

  • You want to buy a unique gift for someone who owns a camera and would really benefit from this course



On the Introduction To Photography workshop you'll learn how to cope with unusual lighting, how to override your camera's settings to give you perfectly exposed images and how to use ISO to give you extra help when light gets low and shutter speeds too slow.

Taking control of your camera means you'll learn how to create those lovely soft-focus backgrounds when photographing people and how to freeze fast moving action - as well as how to take stunning images of moving water so that it looks dreamy.


The workshop is led by industry professional Kevin Ahronson, one of the UK's best photography teachers.  Bringing over 40 years of experience behind the camera and sharing his knowledge with you, Kevin is known for his sense of humour.  So certainly be prepared to learn a lot, but also expect a few smiles along the way.



The Venue

The workshop is run from Stockton House in Fleet (Hampshire), a wonderful building in beautiful grounds.  Our training room (below) opens onto the terrace and we have access to the walled gardens beyond.  


Throughout the day teas and coffee will be available and we'll break for lunch around midday.
