About the Technical Camera workshop

You’ve just arrived in Iceland wanting to make the most out of your photographic equipment but are finding yourself frustrated with your camera's automatic settings, knowing it can do much more…

You're welcome to join us in this easy to understand technical camera and photography workshop breaking your camera system back down to basics. We’ll be exploring and using technical and visual examples of the uses and functions of your camera's shutter speed, f stop and ISO settings. This workshop provides an equal balance of technical information through powerpoint display as well as practical experience.

Once we have digested all the technical information we’ll be going out shooting within the local area putting what we have learned into practice. This workshop equips you with the skills you’ll need to go out shooting on your own and with a little practice you'll be shooting manually in no time.

If you've been thinking of treating yourself to a new camera or set of lenses you'll also get some advice on your best options. The first step in photography is to know and understand your equipment, its possibilities and its limitations. It can be tricky at first with all those dials, settings and strange f numbers.

This is a 100% hands on technical photography workshop and practical experience. Understand your camera controls, start feeling that connection with your camera and what is around you.

Express your creativity and imagination controlling your camera. With this technical camera and photography workshop it'll become much easier to understand and handle your camera and to have it do what you tell it to, and well, wouldn’t that be nice.

 

Recommendations

Bring with you your fully charged camera (with manual if you have it). It is also a good idea to bring all the equipment that you have with you. If you have a tripod you can bring that too. 

Dress for the weather and wear comfortable outdoor walking shoes.
