Photography Course Week 2
Yesterday Double Vision Photography hosted week two of their March Introduction to photography Course. Week two is always exciting as we start getting into the real aspects of photography. It is an exciting lesson and yet and an little stressful session as there is a lot of information to take in and a lot to try grasp in just those few hours. However, once understood this is probably one of the most important lessons of them all.
We started off the session with some catch up and small chat with our students, before getting on and looking at their homework. We asked everyone to take 5+ photos of anything that they wanted, in any mode or setting they wanted. The idea behind this is to get a baseline of pictures to compare too in the end of the course. Some people had brought in some really good photos and then some not so much… But this is ok, as everyone takes bad photos, even us pros.
We then proceeded to do a quick recap of the previous week and answer any questions from the week before. Thereafter, we started to speak about the three main factors that help take a correct exposure. These being, ISO, Shutter speed and aperture. These elements help you reach your goal and desired result in your photos.
We then took a quick break for some amazing pizza from our neighbors, Mimmos. Which once again, was awesome. The food was amazing, and we had some great conversation with everyone.
Lee then took charge and ran a small practical to show how the three elements we had spoken about actually worked. This was to allow everyone to put it into practice and see firsthand the results. It is a great little exercise but a rather challenging one as we do this under shop lights and at night, which makes it quite hard, but everyone caught on and understood.
We then answered a few more questions and made sure that everyone understood, before giving some final explanations and handing over some homework to everyone. We look forward to the results from the homework and can’t wait for next week.
