One-Day Basic Photography Workshop in Düsseldorf.

  • Marco Mega Photo Studio 78 Worringer Straße Düsseldorf, NRW, 40211 Germany (map)


Next workshop will be on 17th July. 



This One-Day Basic Photography Workshop in Düsseldorf is for everybody looking for an introduction to the fascinating world of photography. It is designed for photographers of all levels, from beginners to those with some understanding of digital photography. You will learn basic photography concepts, such as exposure calculation, ISO, white balance, depth of field, composition, how to use your flash effectively, basic post-production and you will have the opportunity to practice your newly acquired skills during 2 practical photo sessions in the studio and outdoor. There will be options to shoot urbanscapes, portraits, street scenes and objects. 

The workshop will also help you to change the way you see. Photography is not only about technical sophistication and complicated equipment, but it is mostly about developing your creativity to see objects, nature and people with a different perspective.  

The workshop will end in the studio with a preview of images taken throughout the day and you will have a chance to get professional feedback. The critique session will include technical and aesthetic aspects and you will be free to ask questions about your photography related doubts.  

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to have a better understanding of the manual functions on your camera, expose creatively, use shutter speed for freezing and motion blur, use aperture and depth of field to get sharper images or isolate details, justify how ISO affects image quality and how to choose the right one, use mixed light sources (daylight and artificial light), adjust white balance effectively, use the right type of lens, decide what is important in your image, understand rules of composition and how to break them.
