Photography Workshop

Camera and Photography Workshop 1 – Wildflower Society of Western Australia – Armadale Branch

  • 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, Sunday 13th August 2017
  • Environmental Centre, Armadale Settlers’ Common, Triton Crescent, Bedfordale


Understand the fundamentals of photography including how to shoot with manual settings, so that great images can be consistently created, rather than relying on the camera’s Automatic mode.  By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained confidence in using their camera in the various shooting modes.


  • Learn how to make full use of the buttons and functions of the participant’s Digital SLR/Bridge camera.
  • Accomplish correct image exposure so that photos are not too dark or too bright.
  • Understand the limitations of Automatic mode, how to work with it and why it’s important that the camera’s manual modes are mastered.
  • Compare and use Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO sensitivity in order to consistently create images in Manual mode.
  • Discover how to control Depth of Field, producing sharp images which stand out against a blurred background.
  • Discover which lenses and flash units to use in various situations and why.
  • Understand the different rules to take a well-composed photograph.
  • Experiment with exposure, focus, depth of field and composition exercises.
  • Participate in critique reviews of images taken throughout the workshop.


  • Participants to bring their own (or borrowed):
  • Camera – preferably DLSR or DLSM (bridge) – with a mode dial wheel;
