STEP 1: INTRO – Know Your Camera from Mobile Phones to DSLRs

2 Day Intro  Photography Workshop Inclusive of Outdoor Practical

A picture might be worth a thousand words, but for the pictorially disinclined, a photograph could be an easy way to avoid lengthy explanations.

Participants will be under the tutelage of the self-taught Wilson Wong, with 2 hours of photography theory conducted indoors on Thursdays (additional classes can be arranged), as well as 4 hours of outdoor practical class, covering both day and night shoots on a Weekend.

The class aims to help people to understand and remedy these problems:

  • Focusing is always not correct
  • The colour from the camera is weird
  • Why the night time shots are so terrible as I can’t seem to get anything from my shots
  • Understanding the various modes on the camera and using it effectively and efficiently
  • Getting interesting shots

With the focus on getting the user to maximise your camera, the course will be covering essential skills needed to capture beautiful shots from landscapes to portraiture, from food to flowers (and the occassional bug).  There won’t just be a course on how to do settings, but real solutions to practical problems that is easy for the beginner to grasp and utilise.  The subjects covered are essential to capturing images from your overseas trips, the family photo album for significant events such as wedding, birthdays and of course holidays.

The introductory classes will also equip participants better to participate in the Basic Manual Training (BMT) to further enhance their photography by using the SAM (Shutter, Aperture, Manual) modes and introduction to simple post processing.  Participants will also be invited to join a special group of photographers to enjoy free photography outings, food photography sessions, group discounted overseas trips, film/lomo photography and event photography.

Wilson is a professional specialising in Product Photography, Event Photography, Wedding Shoots and Travel Photography, and has participated in exhibitions, conducted various workshops and courses at Community Clubs and Private Clubs,

He was a Product reviewer with Singapore’s The Straits Times weekly insert magazine, Digital Life, and has tested out Cameras such as the Sony Alpha 700, Panasonic LX5 to name a few. Masterful in his wedding shots as well as poster designs and baby portraiture, he mentors numerous students who are keen on honing photography skills.

If the quirky spelling of WilzWorkz isn’t going to do much about your camera skills, then surely his passion for photography will do the trick.
