About the event:

Students are invited to join the Canon Collective team for a fun & creative day of photography. The students will learn how to master a Canon DSLR camera, supplied by Canon! Participate in fun photography challenges and receive a free print of their favourite image. This class will help both the children and the adults understand the fundamentals of photography while enjoying a fun day out together. We do ask that all children under 13 are accompanied by an adult.

This class is perfect for those students new to photography, or if you need a refresher on the photographic essentials! You’ll be learning in a friendly classroom environment, designed to teach not lecture. On completion of this course you will understand:

• How your camera works
• Focus and focus lock
