This workshop is designed for beginners or people with limited digital camera knowledge.

Topics covered:
Principles of composition
Colour theory basics
Light, form and texture
Fundamentals of photographic exposure
Aperture, shutterspeed and ISO
RAW file structure
Focal lengths and creating spatial relationships
Perspective and depth cues
Focussing and judicious use of depth of field
