On quite a few ACC trips (and after my ACC photo presentations) I have been asked about teaching photography skills. With the Vancouver ACC Exec's support I am now launching an 'Intro to Photography' course. This is being offered at HALF PRICE to ACC members. The weather forecast looks good and a great easy to reach wilderness location is Iona Beach, near the airport.
FOR THOSE WITHOUT TRANSPORT, there will be a pick up at Templeton Station on the Canada Line at 1.45pm.
Some of my images from this location (and many other Sea to Sky locations) can be viewed here:
The subjects which will be covered include:
- camera equipment to carry
- how to care for your camera / check before use
- holding the camera / posture / breathing
- advantages of SLRs over compacts
- RAW or JPG?
- camera modes and what they mean: P / Tv / Av / M / B / C / portrait / landscape / sport / macro
- prime lenses verses zoom lenses
- differences between wide angles and telephotos
- basics of composition
- basics of focus and depth of field
- where to place the sun
- time of day
- weather and light

Required Items to Bring:
An SLR camera would be ideal, but for those with compacts there will still be plenty to learn, including the advantages of SLRs!
Charged battery and memory card.
