Beyond Beginners - Meetup

Beyond Beginners - Meetup

Saturday the 28th of May
Mandurah - 9am - 2 hours
If you’ve ever uttered these words (or typed them into your social media more likely) ‘the camera doesn’t do this justice’. Then this might be the class for you. A step beyond a beginner’s class, this group session will focus on the common roadblocks that most developing photographers meet and then, of course, removing them. Early in the session we’ll cover the frustrations that nearly all photographers have in common. Then, over the course of the two-hours, the instructor will tailor some challenges to your specific issues. All in the aim, at the end of your session, for you to have one or two more roadblocks removed on the path for you to become the photographer you wish to be.

Different Kinds of Light

Different Kinds of Light

Saturday the 4th of June
Mandurah Terrace - 9am - 2 hours
“I am forever chasing light. Light turns the ordinary into the magical.” – Trent Parke If you’ve got a good camera and mostly know how to use it, but still feel like you could be taking more great photographs instead of just good ones. Then this could be the class for you. Understanding the different kinds of light, how they impact a photograph and how to find them in any environment, will be the next leap you make as a photographer. Back light, rim light, catch light, fill light, Rembrandt light, Caravaggio light, flat light, side light, soft light, hard light, Wright lighting, Vermeer lighting and bouncing light – the list goes on. We won’t be trying to learn all of these types of light in this session, we’ll pick the best three and then go hunting for them. By the end of the class you’ll be looking at the world a little differently, whether the camera is in your hand or not.

I really enjoyed the course. Definitely has increased my knowledge of the basic settings of my camera. Kingsley took his time with each individual to personalise our knowledge. Kingsley has a mannerism that is positive, motivational and encouraging. He shared each persons successes, that built our confidence. I felt we all ended the session feeling empowered with our new knowledge. Look forward to the next 2 courses that I have booked.

Kingsley has excellent knowledge about photography and is really good at breaking down concepts into bite sized pieces. He creates real life situations where you get to practice the skills you are learning on the day thus helping you to develop your craft through each session. For a beginner who has been intimidated by 'the tools' I have learnt so much about my camera in the past couple of weeks. Kingsley has shown patience and understanding whilst helping me to understand and play with my camera. I am looking forward to more photography sessions with the Mandurah Photography Group. Thanks Kingsley.

I think you can always learn new things in photography no matter how experienced you are. Today during our Street Photography walk Kingsley described his way of setting exposure which was a real AH-HA moment for me! Kingsley was patient with the group giving ideas, not only about camera settings, but also interesting ways to compose, catch light on subjects, and the kinds of settings that make good opportunities for street photos. The tour was a valuable experience.

Kingsley made sure that we all understood what he was teaching us and that nobody was left behind. Really enjoyed the class and took away understanding my camera better

INSTRUCTORS
Kingsley Flett
Kingsley first started taking photographs in his early twenties when a magazine editor said "you know you could really save us some money if you could take some pictures to go with your stories". That began a 30 year on-again/off-again love affair with photography that has seen him published in magazines, books, online and even on the occasional billboard. He's completely self taught. This lack of formal photography training probably helps him understand the plight of the beginning photographer more than most. He's a published author, experienced teacher and seminar presenter in his non photographic life too; and 78% of his jokes are funny.
