Camera Exposure and Focused Creativity  with Kate Baker

Whether you would like to use your camera controls with more confidence or move your photography to a higher level, this workshop will help you understand how to use light and focus to make the photograph you wish you could make.  Bring whatever camera you most enjoy, whether it be 35mm, medium or large format.  Digital is also welcome.  We will use a digital camera in the class to demonstrate and review some of the principles.  Whether you are interested in documentary, landscape, portrait, abstract or any other kind of image, you will learn in a very practical way, the essential skills and principles to make the photograph you actually want to make!

Topics covered:
1. Exposure, how the camera uses light and how to make choices
2. Focus
3. Framing for effect
4. Impact of Lighting
5. Intention and Creativity

Kate Baker is a fine art photographer based in the Yarra Valley.  Her photographs are exhibited and collected internationally.  She has gallery representation in Europe and Australia.  As a photographic teacher/mentor she has the ability to communicate in a way that is practical and yet allows you to progress beyond the basics to express your own vision.
