TIME: 9am - 12 noon. Please be prompt.

We meet you at the Reception desk inside the windmill. After introductions, the theory module is undertaken in the Jaycee Room. After a morning tea break at the Founders Cafe, we venture outside to practise photographing a model. You will learn lots about light and camera settings.



These short photography courses are designed to enable folks to improve their photography.
They are not overly technical or comprehensive,
but aimed at helping novices gain understanding of what their camera can do, and what they can do.

"I now feel that I can find various settings on my camera that I did not know about before I started this course ...It has given me confidence to better use my camera & perhaps even look at upgrading it some time in the future."
