Would you like to master all the parameters of your camera so your creativity wont have limits? Get away from the simple choice of shooting in automatic mode by mastering when to use the manual settings.

In this three sessions workshop, you will learn all the technique tricks that you need to finally get familiar with your camera while developing your visual creativity.
Every session will be located in a different area inside Paris so we will explore some high lights of the city along with some “out of the path” places.

Join one session or the 3-part series.

Every class will start with a brief in a café, where we will have the photography lesson of the day. After the brief, we will go out to explore the area at the same time that we will practice though photography assignments.

A final review of your images and suggestions will follow in a friendly feedback session where we will review and analyze your images.

This in-depth course explores the manual mode factors of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. You'll analyze the interaction among them and learn when to apply the manual mode settings.

Students can expect to:

Learn about the manual mode settings and get familiar with their camera

  • Learn about exposure, ISO, aperture, shutter speeds, and how to tackle challenging light situations
  • Learn about composition, color and black and white techniques
  • Develop their visual creativity
  • Your tutor will guide you and will be with you to answer every technical question
  • Get hands-on experience though practical and creative assignments
  • Participate in a friendly feedback and review session of the pictures taken during the class.

Location: Location will be communicated 24 hours before the date of the class.
