An 'Outback Camera Date' teaches you about the buttons & dials on your camera, how to think like a digital camera & how to be creative & confident out of 'auto'.
PLEASE NOTE: numbers are limited to ensure each participant receives adequate tuition & support throughout the workshop.
What is an 'Outback Camera Date'?
  At an 'Outback Camera Date' you will learn the basics of photography then by the end of the day be capturing & creating beautiful images in full 'Manual mode' (yes - you will!).  I teach you about the settings to create particular images such as portraits, action, landscapes, silhouettes, kids, stars & more.
We start in the studio with theory then your cameras are out & its hands on.  At the end of the workshop you will feel more confident to create what you want versus what the camera sees.

About the presenter
Hello! I'm Louise Gronold, founder and presenter of your Outback Camera Date.   I am a professional photographer based in Barcaldine, Outback Queensland. And I adore sharing my passion for photography and the landscapes and communities where I live.

My regional location, and desire to serve those in outback Queensland,  has resulted in me gaining a wide range of skills. In any year, my work involves portraits, weddings,  events, sport, schools, commercial work for our outback businesses and I love creating art for arts sake (of which I have received a half dozen awards or so).

Outback Camera Dates began about 10 years ago when friends twisted my arm to teach them about photography.  Iit was then that I has the realisation that learning photography is one thing. Learning how to put that into action with YOUR OWN camera is quite another.  You want to get to know your camera, feel confident with it and fall in love with it so you can create the image YOU want.  Thus...its a date!
