This workshop is for those who comprehend the "scene" settings and other elementary controls of their cameras but would like a better understanding of white balance, file formats (RAW, JPG etc.), color space, depth of field, flash. By the end of this walkabout you will be able to bring all of these things together to ensure more consistent results time and time again. At the end of the walkabout we shall sit down and enjoy a meal and discuss with Jeff your experiences during the workshop walkabout.
