START WITH BABY STEPS
Manual settings on day 1? I don’t think so. I’m going to show you how to get incredible control without getting bogged down in the hard stuff!
This photography workshop is perfect for those just starting out who want to learn to take control of your camera in a casual setting without the stuffy tech jargon. It’s an amazing foundation for those wanting to grow their photography in the future or the perfect solution for those wanting to get better happy snaps.
GET TO KNOW YOUR CAMERA
Sick of reading manuals and getting nowhere? I cover all brands and models focusing to the buttons, dials and features that matter to you!
We don't rocket into manual settings on this course, instead we look at the practical settings to get immediate improvement and control. We look at brightness (exposure), colour and focus.
EXPERMENT WITH COMPOSITION
Learn about the basics of composition with fun analogies and easy to remember guidelines.
Small groups = More Personalisation.
ALL BRANDS ALL MODELS
Do you want a personalised approach specific to your camera? You’ve found it. With years of experience and thousands of workshop participants you’d be hard pressed to find a camera brand or model that I don’t know my way around.
You’ll need a camera… yep. This course is perfect for almost any type/size/brand/model of camera. I should mention though that being at the zoo, having a little bit of zoom can be very handy as not all animals are close so whilst you can do this workshop with a phone, its usually best to have a stand-alone camera :-)
If you have them, bring them. If you’re camera doesn’t have interchangeable lenses then your lens is already travelling with you :-)
Outside of a charged battery and a memory card I don’t suggest you will need any extra gadgets or gizmos for this workshop. If you have a polarising filter bring it along but if no I have some to loan out.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Whether you’ve been playing with your camera on auto for years or if you’re camera is fresh out of it’s box this workshop is for you. No experience, a bit of experience honesty I think this workshop is perfect for anyone who wants a great foundation without the fluff.
Melbourne can be a funny place when it comes to weather so regardless of the forecast I always recommend bringing a waterproof jacket as even on a sunny day Melbourne can show it’s unique ability to change on a dime! If we have minor drizzle or patchy showers we will be out shooting still as many parts of the zoo are undercover and as a bonus we will have less people to contend with!
If we do have significant forecast rain you will be invited to book onto a different workshop date that suits your schedule.
The Melbourne Zoo Photography Workshop covers entry to Melbourne Zoo for the day and can also be contributed towards a full zoo membership at the end of the session. The workshop its self includes a quick reference guide to the settings and composition ideas covered.
Your workshop has a limit of just 6 people giving you plenty of one-on-one instruction as well as personal attention relevant to your camera brand and model.
Also, I believe that photography concepts take practice and time so at the conclusion of your workshop you will be invited to an exclusive online support group on Facebook where you can continue to grow your photography alongside other Matt Krumins Photography Workshop participants!
