Beginners Photography Class

Beginners Photography Class

Saturday the 22nd of January
Mandjar Square - 9am - 3 hours
A camera is actually a very simple device. But you wouldn't know that to look at one. Even the most basic entry-level DSLR looks like it has got more buttons and switches on it than an aircraft cockpit. This can be intimidating. This 3 hour class is a perfect opportunity to demystify the different settings of your camera so that you can let it just do its job and otherwise get out of the way between you and a great photograph. In the three hours we'll try a few different exercises that will have you understanding exposure, lighting and composition so that you are more likely to take a few of those great pictures that become treasures over time. You might even take one or two of these during the class.

Beyond Beginners Meetup

Beyond Beginners Meetup

Saturday the 29th of January
Mandurah Foreshore - 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.

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.

REVIEWS
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

My first time attending any photography course. Had a great morning with Kingsley and our gang. I better understand basic manual options on my camera and am looking forward to some walks of my own around town and the better and not so good photos I’m about to take. Thanks Kingsley 👍

This is the first time I have done a group shoot like this and found it really interesting. Kingsley took us through several different scenarios which made us really think what we were doing and not just pointing the camera and shooting. I found it very beneficial and would certainly like to do more group shoots in the future.

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.
