Good Photography Starts Here

Basic Photography Course Introduction

Welcome to our Basic Photography Course for Beginners, where we embark on a fascinating journey into the art and science of capturing moments through the lens. Throughout three sessions, we’ll delve into the essential aspects of photography, providing you with a solid foundation to kickstart your creative exploration.

Basic Photography Course For Beginners

In our first session at the Singapore Botanic Garden (Theory), we’ll begin with an insightful “Introduction to Photography,” guiding you through the initial steps of navigating the learning path. A concise exploration of the history and evolution of photography will set the stage, followed by an understanding of the impact of sensor sizes on image creation (Full-Frame vs Crop Sensor). We’ll decode Photography Jargon, such as Shutter, Aperture, ISO, and White Balance, unravelling their practical applications. Distinguishing between camera types – DSLR, mirrorless, and point-and-shoot – will equip you with the knowledge to make informed choices. Deconstructing camera components, deciphering settings like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, and grasping their significance in composition will be pivotal. Guidelines for composition and framing, as well as understanding Focal Length, will further enrich your theoretical understanding.

Moving on to Singapore Botanic Garden (Practical I), we transition from theory to hands-on experience. You’ll master camera handling and settings, acquaint yourself with the intricacies of camera controls, and optimize settings for both improved pictures and enhanced learning outcomes. We’ll delve into the depth of field control, the correct approach to achieving well-exposed photographs, and the application of techniques such as the Shift-Focus technique. Basic composition techniques will be explored, and you’ll have the opportunity to experiment with diverse angles, perspectives, and creative ideas to elevate your photography skills.

In the final session at Fort Canning Park (Practical II), you’ll apply the knowledge gained in the previous sessions to real-world scenarios. We’ll further explore the use of appropriate focal lengths, delve into the choice between Black and white and Color settings, and learn to effectively utilize frame space in photography. The exploration of reference lines, symmetry, and an understanding of perspective will contribute to refining your composition skills. The session will conclude with a dynamic Question and Answer session, providing you with the opportunity to clarify doubts and deepen your understanding.
