TUTORIAL


CPF Photowalks are intended to provide participants with an opportunity to learn more about photography. In this case, there will be 45 minutes on the ferry plus time on the island, where senior members are happy to provide assistance.


 


There will not be any formal tutoring, rather the onus is on participants to ask.  If you want information, "just ask".


The ferry trip provides a great opportunity to cover some of the basics, then it is a matter of tagging onto the senior members during the shoot.


A strong recommendation is that you bring and use a tripod. While a tripod may not be essential, it is a great way to enable someone to see exactly what you intend to capture. If you have a tripod - bring it.
