So, you are looking for a beginners workshop and want to learn and how to create awesome photos with your camera? Then this workshop is for you.

You will learn how to understand light and how your camera captures it. Did you hear about focal length, aperture, shutter speed and ISO? We will deal with these technical fundamentals of the camera and after that we will dive into creative composition.

This workshop is not only about theory: We will put everything into practice by going out for some street photography and portraits. At the end of this workshop you will not only learn all this, but also to use the most important photographer’s tool: the eyes.
