This workshop is an introduction to digital photography for people that have a DSLR and want to learn how to use it better, or for people who want to understand the basics of photography and would like to refine their knowledge and enhance their practice.

We will discover how to use our cameras on a fully manual setting. Understanding aperture, shutter speed, film speed, and the mechanical workings of the camera.

It is necessary to provide your own camera that has the ability to shoot on full manual. (Any DSLR camera will have this function, and some point-and-shoot cameras. It is the "M" on your dial).

Payment is possible in any currency, if paying by card you will be charged in USD at the bank rate, if paying via PayPal you will be charged in your local currency at the PayPal rate. Spaced are limited.

About me (Joshua Strydom, I’ll be your instructor).

I was born and raised in Zimbabwe, I got my BFA in Fine Art, concentrations in Photography and Printmaking and a Minor in Art History from Memphis College of Art in 2016. Since 2013 I have been working as a photographer and fine artist. I have photographed the Beale Street Music Festival (Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Dan Auerbach, Paul Simon, Panic! At The Disco, Train among others) and for many publications, and private commissions.

I have exhibited in the USA, Zimbabwe, across Europe and most recently in Singapore for the Singapore Art Week being mentioned in the top 28 attractions in Singapore that weekend. My philosophy is to tell stories with my art, to use photography as a means of conversation using visual vocabulary. To do this you need to understand the tools, in this case the camera and its abilities. In this workshop I hope to bring you to a place of confidence with the camera in your hands; to help you to tell your own stories. This workshop is targeted towards people who have an interest in photography, but may not know how to use all of their cameras functions, or those who aim to gain a deeper understanding of how the camera works and how to elevate your photographs to a more refined and intentional output.

I hope to see you on September 28th, for an exciting adventure through the lens of portrait photography!
