Bridge the gap between ‘what you see’ and ‘what you get’
While this workshop does feature a quick brush-up of the concepts of photography, it focuses more on the aspect of taking pictures, understanding the modes of a camera and developing a ‘good eye’, which will eventually reduce the effort and enhance the quality of your pictures.
