GPG Basic Photography Workshop for Beginners

Saturday 19 October 2019 – 8:30 am to 12 noon at the Unifor Hall, 611 Silvercreek Parkway North, Guelph (North of Woodlawn Avenue)

This workshop is for people who may be new to digital photography and want to enhance the enjoyment of using their digital camera. It consists of a series of brief lectures with hands-on breakout sessions to help participants learn the range of capabilities that can be unleashed by moving beyond their digital camera’s fully automatic mode and mastering its semi-automatic and fully manual settings. Breakout sessions will be facilitated by GPG members who are familiar with the various makes/brands of cameras for each participant.

After a break for lunch (not provided), participants are encouraged to join other GPG members for an outing to the Woodlawn Cemetery to practice their new skills alongside more experienced GPG members.
