Black & White Photography - Elizabet Ney - 10am-12 noon
Black & White can be an interesting way to strip back your photography and focus on the basics. We will be learning to "see" a subject in black and white. Humans see in colour, so ignoring the colour takes practice, but learning to predict how your shots will look in "grayscale" or "monochrome" is a brilliant skill to have.

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 amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

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.

Sunset Photography - Hyatt Regency - 6 pm - 8 pm
A beautiful sunset can be enjoyed and appreciated by everyone. Photographers refer to the last (dusk) hours of the day as the "golden hours" when the light is at its best for photography. Our light meters can be thrown off by the strong amount of light hitting our sensor, so we will be exploring manual mode and exposure compensation to intensify the colours of our sunset.

This was a really great event. I don't have a background on abstract photography, but the instructor was informative and the location was perfect for this.
