Tired of taking “frozen shots” of your favorite subjects? Why not try a variation in technique to create “Motion Blur”?
Motion blur is used to portray motions and movements of the subject in a photograph by varying the shutter speed to see images that our naked eye can’t!
In this workshop, participants will learn about the essential equipment required, camera settings and compositional techniques to take a motion blur photograph. Participants should have basic knowledge of camera functions and bring along a tripod and remote trigger if they have one. If you’re intrigued in learning more about MotionBlur technique, join us!
"Do you always take school events photographs only? Would you like to try something different? Why not street photography which is an extension of the type of photographs that you take of school events?
Street photography is basically random pictures of people or things that happens on the street.
In this workshop, you will learn about the camera settings and compositional techniques that one can use to take photographs on the street. You will also learn about the do's and don'ts when taking these photos.
Participants must have basic knowledge of camera functions."
Monochrome photography emphasises on contrast as it only shows hues of a single colour. An example is the vintage sepia photos back in the early generations where cameras are just invented. Different colours can represent different mood and emotions. Red can show anger and passion, while photos in black and white can show gloominess. For all the young photographers, monochrome is something one can do to emphasis the mood and remove distractions in the picture and it should be well known to photographers so as to be made use of. It also enables creative thinking as one can mix this mode with other photography techniques such as long exposure or freeze motion. It is important to learn about the monochrome photography learnt in the early generations of cameras.
For some of you out there, this is what a typical photo in most general techniques look like - grab a subject, capture it with composition and in focus. Are you sick and tired of it? Have you desired “new”? “Unique”? Then this workshop is for you! Through this workshop, you will learn the basics and fundamentals of light painting and how you can use different light sources to create abstract and artistic photos up to your pure imagination, through the use and experimentation of lights to create unique and unexpected photos! All you need is a tripod, a camera with a long exposure setting, a light source, and a creative mind and you're good to go! Sign up for light painting now!

Portrait photography is one of the more creative forms of photography. A portrait can capture meaning through lighting, expression, backgrounds and props. These variables can dramatically change the mood of a photograph. Portrait photography captures the identity and mood of a person during a special moment. It is useful for catching those fleeting moments in life to express the emotions the subject is facing at that point in time. Portrait photography is a useful and creative skill to master as two people can take the same photo of the same person with two different moods and emotions shown. In this workshop, we will go over an overview of portrait photography and explore some tips and techniques to help participants master portrait photography.
Macro Photography opens up a new perspective of the world. Most things captured in macro are not obvious to the eye and can more often than not, be looked over. However, if we take a moment to observe our surroundings in detail, there are many common things that we can capture that have the ability of producing interesting photos.
Landscape photography is the capturing of wide-angled photographs of scenery, usually natural and urban. It is one the oldest forms of photography and continues to be largely popular throughout the entire history of photography. Think of some of the most iconic photos in history, such as Ansel Adams shots of Yosemite, encapsulating the staggering natural beauty and essence of a location in its entirety at a particular point in time. In Landscapes, the location itself is the subject and focus of the photo, filling the entire frame with a wider-angled perspectives. In this aspect, the main challenge of landscape photography lies in the framing and composition itself. This course will teach you how to capture beautiful landscapes by considering the technical aspects of framing, composition and colour. Your trainers have several years of experience under their belts, capturing the most scenic landscapes all across the globe.
