Choose Between Two Options
- $42 for a three-hour Introductory DSLR workshop (a $99 value)
- $110 for a four-day DSLR Next Step program (up to a $240 value)
During Introductory DSLR workshops, students man their cameras both inside and outside, learning composition, mechanics, and aesthetics in a classroom setting before putting newfound knowledge to use in historic Gastown. Instructors cover technical topics such as shutter speed, depth of field, and aperture for total manual control. A follow-up to the intro course, the DSLR Next Step program teaches photographers to tweak their cameras and create custom portfolios during workshops held on four consecutive Saturdays. Students participate in photo critiques, learn about file formats, colour temperature, and lighting, and receive a crash course on Photoshop so they can edit out unwanted glare and add in post-shoot bunny ears.
