Saturday 10th August - No More Auto Mode with Raimond de Weerdt
Join our master photographer Raimond de Weerdt for something new in our series of Photography workshops. This one day workshop is designed for those who own a digital SLR or mirrorless digital camera with manual settings. Whilst taking pictures using the camera’s Auto Mode is easy and convenient, it unfortunately inhibits full creative control of the camera’s other settings. Join us as we learn how to get your camera off Auto mode.
Regardless of the camera’s brand (Nikon, Canon, Sony etc) this workshop will give you the knowledge and conﬁdence to start exploring the world of photography beyond the Auto Mode.
In addition this workshop covers many other techniques such as composition, lighting and ﬁle management.
Students need to bring their own camera, a fully charged battery and enough storage on the memory card.
Saturday 24th & 31st August - Watercolour Painting with Harry Westera
Join Harry Westera to develop your watercolour skills. These workshops run over two Saturdays in August. Details are as follows:
Day 1: Watercolour in Black and White. Learn to simplify tones to create a strong design and make your painting stand out.
Day 2: Watercolour in … Colour! Is colour confusing for you? Learn to develop harmonious colour schemes with a limited range of watercolour paints.
Harry will explore the above and a whole lot more over these two days. Please note the times for these workshops are different to our usual workshop hours and include morning tea but no lunch. Workshops run from 9:00am – 1:30pm.
