Calling all amazing mums and dads out there! The Canon Collective is a group of like minded photographers that can help you develop the skills to take better photos of your family. In this workshop we will help you to take better photos of your family by understanding the foundations of photography.
Join Canon Collective Ambassador, Steve Huddy, for an introduction to portrait photography. Hosted during school hours, this session is intended for you to bring your little one down to the park. Together we can learn some tips and tricks on capturing some great candid portraits.
This introduction is intended to provide you with the foundations to go away and shoot some candid portraits in natural light. Head outside, and all you need is your Canon camera and subject. During this workshop we will cover lens selection and semi automatic exposure modes, so you can focus on capturing the moment rather than getting too caught up in balancing exposures. We will also discuss using natural light, nailing your focus even when there’s lots of movement and practice some introductory composition techniques.
These workshops are not a sales session, they are an after the box service provided by Canon for our community, free of charge to help you feel more comfortable and in control of your Canon camera.
