About the event:

Join Jenn from the Canon Collective for an intermediate workshop on surf photography. In this session we'll discuss the best techniques, lens selection and shooting modes to capture the fast action before us.

Please note this event will be held on the sand and considerations should always be made when taking any camera equipment onto the beach.

This class will help you understand the fundamentals of using your camera for sports photography, including exposure, aperture and shutter speeds, ISO, focus controls, focus tracking, composition and more.

This class is perfect for those with an intermediate understanding photography and are confident in operating their camera. You’ll be learning outdoors on the beach (weather permitting), in a friendly environment, designed to teach not lecture. On completion of this course you will understand:

• How your camera works
• Focus techniques including tracking
• Sports photography tips
• Shutter speed and how it affects your images
• How to use the shutter priority setting
• ISO and how it is used in low light and sports photography
• Working with light and dealing with problems you might encounter
• RAW files (introduction)
• UV and Polarising Filters
• Composition

A little knowledge can make a world of difference. Check out our surf photography tips from Fran Miller.
