Festive Photography - Driskill Hotel 10.00am-12am
Festive photography can encompass a wide range of genres, and this week we'll be looking at how you can use different techniques to capture the spirit of the season.
We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Austin. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.
Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.
What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!
What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!
The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.
We also occasionally hold more formal beginners classes which last 3 hours and are limited to 6 people. These classes are perfect for complete beginners who want to start using manual mode and those who want to brush up on the basics. See the dates below.
Architectural Photography - Blanton Museum of Art at 10.00am-12am

We’ll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use. Downtown Austin has a stunning variety of architecture and lots of interesting spots to explore with our cameras.
