Beyond Beginners - Meetup

Beyond Beginners - Meetup

Saturday the 13th of August
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. It might be to take better travel pictures, better pictures of your pets or better family portraits - we'll be able to set a challenge to make you better.

Beginners Photography Class

Beginners Photography Class

Saturday the 20th of August
Mandjar Square, Mandurah - 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.

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.
