Beyond the basics photography workshop

Elevate your skills to the next level with our 'Beyond the Basics' practical photography workshop, an all-day session designed as a follow-up to our beginners photography course. Learn advanced camera and photography techniques and improve on your composition skills as we explore the vibrant backdrop of Brisbane CBD guided by our knowledgeable tutor.

Location : South bank cultural centre and Brisbane CBD

Course duration : 8 hours (inc 1 hour lunch break)


Class size : 6

We begin the morning session at the cultural centre in South bank and after a brief introduction make our way over the Victoria bridge to the Brisbane CBD to begin taking photos with an emphasis on exposure and different metering techniques. Our walk will take us past many places of interest with lots of opportunities to take some great photos of the busy streets and varying architecture and places of interest that Brisbane has to offer. After lunch we continue our walk whilst discussing and trying out some new techniques with the second half of the afternoon talking us through Roma street parklands to capture some nature shots before finally crossing over the kurilpa bridge for some creative night shots at Southbank parklands.

What you will learn
With particular emphasis on composition, you will learn about advanced exposure techniques, when to use priority modes, exposure compensation, camera meter settings, manual white balance settings, using aperture and shutter speed creatively and more. We will also be discusing topics including; controlling light using reflectors and diffusers, flash, filters for general and landscape photography and more. 

What camera do you need
To get the most from this workshop a mirrorless or DSLR camera is recommended, the smaller ‘bridge cameras’ may also be used but we do recommend checking in with us prior to booking.

Tripods are provided (free of charge) if you do not have one.

"Paul is amazing. I've done two courses now, and will definitely do more. He is very knowledgeable, and will answer all your questions. He takes the time to familiarise you with your camera, and explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and that sticks with you. He has been very responsive to email queries and provides excellent advice. Highly recommend."
