Basic Photography Workshop Zsuzsa Bakonyi


“You don’t take a photograph, you make it. – Ansel Adams
Photography can be your companion and teacher for life, but you need to get to know each other and make friends first, just like in any relationship. If you know how your camera, lenses, the light and the subjects work, you will be in control of taking the picture and can develop a much more conscious way of photography.


The basic photography workshop aims to cover topics such as ‘getting off the ‘auto’ mode’ and learning how to better understand the way your camera works in order to reduce the amount of disappointing images and non-productive results. Participants will be taking control of creative aspects such as depth-of-field and motion blur. Participants will finish the course being able to look at a photograph and really critique it and understand why it works, why it doesn’t.

Workshop is designed for:
For beginners or those having many doubts about basic settings or just want to improve. DSRL, bridge cameras or compact cameras needed for the course.

With this workshop you will learn in 2 days everything you need for a solid foundation regarding your camera, technical and creative settings, picture composition and developing a photographer’s eye. We focus on the most important technical and compositional terms and explain them to participants the easy way, so that they can really understand and remember it forever
