2. SNAP SNAP! THE DETROIT PHOTOGRAPHY ADVENTURE
Wednesday, November 6
This bespoke 3-hour photo adventure takes you to some of the most killer photo spots in Detroit with a helpful professional instructor along the way to teach you the essentials. This is a great tour for all skill levels but especially beginners.
You’ve got the cool camera. Now develop the skills to match.
Photography right now is bigger than ever with the rise of Instagram. Maybe you’ve purchased that cool new DSLR camera or that mirrorless. But what do you do with it? We’ve seen time and time again people getting stuck at the doorway to the awesome art that is photography without the knowledge
It’s all good: we’ve got your back! We’ve designed this adventure from the ground up to help you understand the fundamentals of photography so you can capture the best images possible in any situation. We’ll be covering all of the basic settings of your camera and what they do so you come away with a comprehensive understanding of the art form.
The quality of your camera doesn’t matter here. You’re welcome to bring a DSLR, mirrorless or even just your smartphone! We’re able to help you develop fresh new photography skills using any age of digital camera. Film cameras are welcome too – but most of our instruction will be based on digital photography on this trip. The best sorts of cameras for this trip would have a Manual mode, or at least P/S/A modes. If you have any questions about your camera being suitable for this trip feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the make and model.” Facebook Event
