Sylvia Galbraith Photography Workshop presents “Photography Skills Level 1”

October 5 @ 7:00 pm - November 23 @ 10:00 pm

Sylvia Galbraith Photography Workshop presents “Photography Skills Level 1”

This is an 8-week course on Tuesdays from October 5 – November 23, 2021  |  7:00 – 10:00 PM

Classes will be held in the classroom at the Elora Centre for the Arts, and will run in-person following Public Health guidelines.

About the Course:
Based on my Conestoga College courses, this introductory level 8-week course is the first in a series of four courses that include Photography Skills – Levels 1 & 2,  Digital Imaging – Photoshop Levels 1 & 2, as well as single workshops such as Documentary Photography and The Photographic Art Form. 

This first course of the series is suitable for those with no experience.  You will gain confidence with your camera to be able to shoot in any situation, and is the first step in learning photography skills that can take you beyond the hobbyist or amateur level.  We’ll cover everything from lenses to exposure settings, as well as lighting, file formats, focus and much more.  You must have either a DSLR or advanced mirrorless camera for this course.
