Each session starts with an introduction to this fortnightís theme. Your instructor will talk you through the camera settings and techniques to use, and there will be plenty of time to take lots of photos and ask your instructor questions. You will also receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. Theyíre a social bunch!
There are also classes to suit different level of photography experience.
Are you a complete beginner?
If you are a novice behind the camera, Birmingham Photography Group recommends you start with the Photography for Beginners Class, which is a three hour structured workshop where youíll learn the basics of using your camera with 1-on-1 time with the instructor.
Are you looking to learn more?
Come along to the group sessions, which are more casual and informal than other workshops, and with more time to take photos and put your new skills into practice.
