In this class you will learn how to photograph in manual mode and explore the limitless approaches that photography can offer you. The only limitation is your imagination.
With this being a smaller class, we will have a lot of one-on-one time but; be open to sharing your difficulties and current hurdles with the others in our class. That is how we all learn, improve, and develop your photographic eye.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Plymouth.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Plymouth Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Saturday the 5th of June 2021
Architectural Photography - Royal William Yard - 9am - 2 hours
Settings: maximise the depth of field / use a narrow aperture. May need to take shutter speed down and ISO up a little. Think about what areas of the shot you would like to get in focus - are there any areas you think would be better blurred out by a wide aperture?
Finding a spot that has a foreground and background interest. Think carefully about where you place your camera and tripod.
Take your time. Thereís no need to take hundreds of shots at this session, itís all about taking the time to see and record the areas of interest around you. What can you see differently? What grabs your attention? Create photographs - not snapshots.
What is the sky doing? If itís bland and no contrast, then donít let it dominate your frame. It is always good to have a slice of sky so that it can help Ďbreak upí the composition in a good way - think rule of thirds.
Keep an eye on the horizon! Keep them level.
