Beginners intro session to the camera

For those who have any style of digital camera and want to take it off auto and understand how a camera really works. Having a camera can be exciting, yet quite daunting too. We will look at the basics of how the camera operates and how the 3 basic elements; shutter speed, aperture and ISO come together to help you produce creative photographs.

You don’t need to know anything at this stage, just come prepared to explore your camera, be brave and have fun!

What to bring:

  • Your camera (any style, make or model) and we will spend some time in the space learning about its settings
  • Dress warm and comfortable as we will spend time outside exploring the camera settings
  • Something to make notes and write with
  • Any objects you wish to try to photograph (optional)
Making the People Powered Press' workshop Covid-safe

Although we’re launching this season of workshops at a time of uncertainty about future Covid-19 restrictions, we’re making sure that the workshop is designed and equipped to keep you safe and comfortable now, and in the event of any future developments.

So here’s what's being to make the People Powered Press a safe, creative place.

  • Staff will be tested for Covid on the morning of the day on which any workshop will take place.
  • All participants will be asked to take a Covid test before travelling to the workshop.
  • The space will be well ventilated, using our in-built extraction system and an air purifier.
  • We have sanitiser stations around the space and there are wipes for cleaning surfaces and shared equipment.
  • Masks will be worn inside the building if and when official guidance indicates that they should.
  • We will provide workspace dividers if and when official guidance indicates that we should.
  • BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE: if your workshop has to be postponed, your ticket will still be valid for the rescheduled event. If you're not able to get to it, we will offer you a full refund.

We’ll regularly review all these measures against the latest government guidance, and we hope that this will reassure you that you’re in a comfortable, safe environment, and that we’re taking your safety very seriously indeed.
