Workshop – Frequently Asked Questions

1. What to bring?

For the theory sessions bring your camera with fully charged batteries, a spare fully charged battery if you have any.  A pen for writing notes on the handout materials. Please ensure you have enough space on your memory card for approximately three hundred photographs. Please also bring your camera’s user manual (if you can find it!). If you have spare interchangable lens’s please bring these with you as well.


2. Do I need a SLR type of camera?

No. However to get the most out of our workshop and to help you learn the principles of photography you will require a camera which allows you to manually adjust settings such as shutter speed and aperture.

6. How many attendees for each workshop?

A maximum of 6. The group sizes are small to ensure everyone is able to ask questions and gain the most benefit out of the workshop. We will still go ahead even if there are less than six attendees.

7. What to bring for the afternoon session?

In the afternoon we will take a walk around Hong Kong Park and possibly further afield depending on time and the lighting situation. I would suggest as a minimum comfortable shoes, water, and insect repellant. If you have a tripod please bring this as well.

8. What if its raining?

Sometimes taking pictures in the rain can really add to your photographs, however as its important this session is both enjoyable and informative, when it is raining heavily and not look like letting up for the afternoon session we will reschedule you in for another afternoon.

An assessment will be made on the day following the morning session however, if it looks like it will only be light rain with the odd shower we will continue as normal.
