About the Course
Academia Photographix presents Learn Photography Weekend workshops for October 2013. Divided into two levels, we start right from the P-of-photography and guide you towards full manual shooting where you control the camera and not the other way around!
Each workshop is divided into easy to grasp modules, complemented by live-demos, in-class exercises and post-class assignments. For personal guidance and to keep the workshop close-knit, two mentors would lead each workshop and the number of participants is limited. We will also hand out some super-efficient cheat sheets that you can keep in your camera bag - handy for many months to come!
The Level 1 workshop focuses on getting the fundamentals right. Whether you are absolutely fresh to photography with a newly bought camera; a hobbyist who wants to take better travel photos or even an aspiring professional, you will learn to use your camera and lenses, dial the right exposure and go confidently beyond the Auto-mode! There are no pre-requisites for this workshop - all you need is enthusiasm and an interest for photography!
