Get away from the simple choice of shooting in automatic mode by mastering when to use the manual settings.

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

The class will start with a photography lesson of the day. After the brief, we will explore the area while practicing through guided photography assignments. The instructor will answer your questions and will be available at all times. A final review will follow in a friendly feedback session where we will review and analyze your images and offer suggestions.

You can expect to:

  • Learn about composition and exposure in photography.
  • Develop observational skills to catch a moment in a photograph.
  • Get familiar with their camera or smartphone settings.
  • Learn storytelling in photography.
  • Get hands-on experience through practical assignments.
  • Participate in a friendly critique of their work.

Suitable for all levels and all types of cameras, including smartphones.
