Fujifilm X Camera Workshop with Andrew Newson
Pret A Manger
110 Paternoster Square
The workshop is £89.99
There are only 8 places available on this workshop.
The workshop aims to give participants a good introduction to the main features of their Fujifilm X camera. We will move away from using fully automatic modes and learn how to take better and more consistent photos.
This workshop is a fun and social way of learning. It’s not important to have any prior knowledge of your camera.
Users of all Fuji X cameras, such as:
Fujifilm X100 / X100s / X100t / X100f
Fujifilm X-T1 / X-T2
Fujifilm X-Pro 1 / X-Pro 2
Fujifilm X-E1 / X-E2 / X-E2s
Fujifilm X-T10 / X-T20 / X-M1 / X-70
The day will start at 10.30 am and conclude at 16.00 pm.
The objectives are for you to take control of your camera by utilising Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual exposure modes so you can start to achieve consistently better photographs.
The day will start with coffee and introductions at Pret A Manger (Paternoster Square). Everyone will meet and get to know each other before Andrew gives a talk on how to use your camera. He will explain how best to control your camera, give advice on software and share some Fujifilm specific tips and tricks for getting the most out of your camera.
Everyone will be given notes to follow and these are yours to keep and refer back to. There will also be plenty of chance to ask questions too.
We will aim to leave Pret A Manager at no later than 12.00pm and embark on a photowalk of around 3 miles. This is your chance to put into practice what you have just learned and with Andrew on hand at all times to help, should you have any issues. He will also set up a few test photo scenarios, so everyone can practice getting their settings right.
As part of the course you will be set a little creative assignment, to photograph Andrew’s list of 10 things in a creative and unique way. There’s no pressure but it’s fun way to get creative, take some nice photos and get used to your camera.
The photowalk part of the course will finish at around 1.30pm where you will head to a pub and download your photographs and share with the group. Andrew will offer some feedback, both positive encouragement and constructive advice.
It would be useful if you could bring an iPad/tablet or laptop to download your images. It’s much easier and quicker if you can download your own images and choose your best photos to share with the group instead of having to wait to use just one device. If you don’t have a tablet or laptop you will be able to use Andrew’s.
The course will finish no later than 4.00pm.
You will be able to share your photos through Social Media after the event.
The photowalk is likely to be around 3 miles and the event may take place in inclement weather so come prepared.
