Sorry, this show is already over but head here for other fun events!


A shiny, new DSLR is a dream possession that probably is only un-boxed for that special group picture at a family function. 'Aperture', 'ISO' and 'shutter-speed' sound like Greek to even the most adept smart-phone photographers, and your camera never leaves the auto mode! If you have wondered why your pictures don't come out as well as they ought to, or how to get the right bokeh, hop on this wagon and we'll show you the way!

Open Bracket presents: Lens and sensibility, Fundamentals of Digital Photography - a workshop that will introduce you to the exciting world of digital photography. The artist, an expert photographer, will outline fundamental techniques using which you can start taking better images of any subject. By the end of the session, you will be able to judge the factors that influence an image and affect composition while framing a picture. This talk on equipment, light, modes and effects will conclude in an exercise of roaming outdoors and clicking photographs! So if you love wandering the streets with a DSLR around your neck, and wish to capture breathtaking pictures sign up with us for spirited 'camera'derie and serious 'exposure'!
