Beginner Photography Class

Saturday the 22nd of January
Angus Smith Drive - 7:00 am - 3 hours
Appropriate for complete beginners, or those who want to brush up on the basics and start enjoying our regular group meet-up sessions. Learn how to get off Auto Mode and onto Manual Mode, along with the basics of composition. Cameras, their functions, and all their accessories can be overwhelming if you’re not already familiar with them. Discover how to use your camera to capture moments, events, and people in your everyday life. The class will cover a range of technical aspects, including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. You’ll also cover focal length and lenses, lighting, and correct exposure.

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Townsville Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.
