Last Saturday I attended Workshop‘s Photography Basics class, led by the wonderful Camille Santiago. Though I’ve been fumbling around with photography for years, it was nice to go back and refresh my knowledge on the core settings and to have some parts more clearly explained. It was also so lovely to properly meet and chat with Camille, who I have been admiring for years since I started following her blog.
After running through all the theory behind the workings of a camera, we set off to the Cultural Centre and later Southbank to put what we had learned into practice. I forced myself to mostly use my 50mm prime lens which I’ll admit to neglecting lately. I have a whole new appreciation for using the aperture mode on my camera now than ever before and for the first time I actually properly shot in full Manual, something which I’ve always been apprehensive and not confident about using. Definitely need to keep practicing though.
Many thanks to Camille for sharing her photography wisdom and to Workshop Brisbane for hosting the event. I hope they put on more classes in the future!
Here’s a few select photos from the day.
