During our time together you will learn how to finally take great pictures and understand how to use your camera. If you've been struggling to get your photos to look like the way you imagine, this workshop is for you. You'll learn all the foundations of good photography, improve your photos and understand how to use your camera. We'll first meet for coffee at one of Melbourne's great cafes. We'll use the time to get to know each other, and for me to understand what you're most struggling with and want to focus on during the workshop. I want to make sure to help you with your specific goals! You'll learn how to use your camera in manual mode - including an easy-to-understand guide to aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. I will teach you how to take better photos without feeling intimidated by all the technical details. My aim is to empower you and feel confident. After coffee and going over the details with you, we'll head out to put the new knowledge into practise and take some photos. I’ll be there to give on-hand tips and guidance. Ask me any questions you have! Make the most of your time in Melbourne, feel confident using your camera, and come back home with some great photos.
I've been working as a professional photographer for over 7 years, teaching and running workshops in both Melbourne and London for the last 4 years. My background is in documentary photography & photojournalism - my photos are candid, natural and tell a story. You can see my work at helenalapetite.com. I love to see people's excitement and enthusiasm when they start to understand how to use their camera in manual mode. I want you to feel empowered to get the photos they want. Let's take the frustration out of taking photos, and have some fun again - getting the results you imagine.
