Wow... I just conducted a basic course in D-SLR photography. And I had 10 students attending it. It was a hands-on, in-the-field session, too!

I was requested by my friends to conduct a basic photography course. I said, OK!
With the first batch of 10 students, I chose to have it at Shah Alam lake gardens. I like the place because of the variety of subjects to shoot. And, the area is shaded with trees to be cool enough for us to withstand the class from 8am to 11am. The session spanned 2 days, for a total of 6 hours of tutorials.
I did cover the basics of exposure, metering and focusing in Day 1. On Day 2, I did on the topics of lenses, perspective control and visualization techniques. For visualization techniques, I used the Zone System for the students to understand the concept of observation and cropping the frame.
It was a great session, the students had a great time understanding the basics of photography.
All was well!
I hope to run another session, soon. If interested, you can contact me directly.
