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.
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.
