Photo Workshops 2016


“My wife and I undertook the Basics in Digital Photography with Vincent Sung on the 7 September, 2014.

It was a great introduction to digital photography, and having only bought my first DSLR recently, it was a great opportunity to work through the various functions in practice, rather than reading the instruction manual (which is far less fun).

We learnt about lenses and their attributes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and white Balance. Getting a better sense of depth of field was really useful too. Focusing on getting the correct exposure, understanding exposure modes, and why metering is important, has immediately helped us with our amateur photography needs.

Vincent is a great instructor – passionate yet relaxed, he walks you through the course with ease and ensures you’re working at a pace that suits you.

I’ll definitely go back for another course in the coming weeks”

Understanding Light in Photography

Time: morning (from 10pm to 1pm) and weekdays (evening from 6pm to 9pm)

Lighting is one of the most important elements in photography. However, most beginners in photography often think that when they take photographs, they are taking the people, mountain or buildings. The truth is, you are actually recording the light that is reflected off these objects. Therefore, without good light, even the most compelling subject will not make for an interesting photograph. 

This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to create an effective image with the most appropriate illumination.  

Some topics that will be covered:

– Introduction to Lighting
– Natural vs artificial Lighting
– Indoor vs Outdoor Lighting

– Color Temperature
