This weekend gone (May 4 & 5), myself and three friends all traveled the +500 kilometres to participate in Angie Baxter’s Love Your Camera workshop in Brisbane.
It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve had time away from my family, but the fact that it was a girly-weekend and we got to play with our camera’s had us all buzzing.
Angie’s promise is that within the 7 hours of the workshop, she’ll have you shooting fully in Manual and that you will take your photographs from “so-so” to “OMG, they are amazing!!!”
What can I say, she definitely delivers!
Even though I’ve been shooting in Manual for a while now, I was looking forward to having someone explain the nuts and bolts of ISO, aperture and shutter speed, which Angie does – in simple and understandable language.
The one thing I liked most about the workshop was that once she had explained a particular principle, we then picked up our cameras and set off to practice. Angie would wander around giving us pointers and tips and lots of encouragement.
And she was more than generous in sharing her wealth of knowledge. Believe me when I say that I had more than 1 lightbulb moment in those 7 hours!
If you’re looking for a hands-on camera course, then I’d highly recommend the Love Your Camera workshop – especially if you’re keen to shoot in Manual, but haven’t yet had the confidence to give it a go.
