Very Beginner Photography with Karen McKinnon – IN STUDIO

Class Description:
Come play with us as we explore photography with Karen McKinnon of McKinnon Photography.

In this one-day photo workshop, Karen will take you from using your camera’s automatic settings to working in manual mode. On that journey, she will share tools and inspiration to find and refine your way of seeing.

This is a hands-on workshop that is open to all levels of photographers.

If you are used to shooting in automatic but want to venture into the powerful world of manual photography, this workshop is for you!

Topics to be discussed:

  • Good light and how to find it
  • Harnessing the power of composition
  • Aperture
  • ISO
  • Shutter speed
  • And more…

We will be venturing outside for part of the class to capture the beauty of the Comox Valley (rain or shine).

Please note this class is limited to 8 students so you will get plenty of individualized instruction and attention. 

Covid protocols:

  • Students (and instructors) will be required to wear a mask at all times during the class.
  • Please use hand sanitizer or wash hands with soap and water upon entry to studio
  • Instructor will go over tool safety and protocols during the first class
