Festive Season Photography
Festive photography can encompass a wide range of genres, and this week we'll be looking at how you can use different techniques to capture the spirit of the season.
We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around San Francisco. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.
Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.
Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.
What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!
What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!
After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.
The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Had wonderful time being my first, meeting new people who enjoy doing what I enjoy doing professionally or as a hobby. I've enjoyed having someone to show me tips with the snap shots I've captured too better my craft. Looking forward to next gathering. Thank you 4/5 by Linda Lewis 28-11-2019

The small group allowed for very useful personal instruction about what worked, what didn’t work, and what could work better in the photos we took. Loved the experience of shooting photos as we walked and learning where and how to use various manual settings based on where we walked and what we saw - resulting in experiential learning 5/5 by Sylvia Warren 18-8-2019
