Ted's Cameras Learning Centre

Melbourne Courses

There is something deeply satisfying in taking complete control of your camera – knowing its potential in your hands. This kind of control and satisfaction cannot be achieved using only your Auto modes. So come along and get a real start in your photography – a start that could take you to the places you want to go. By the end of the day you will have an understanding of shutters speeds, apertures, shooting in manual mode and how to get your photos correctly exposed every time.

The three-hour tour takes you through several Melbourne hot spots, trying new techniques, teaching trouble-shooting tips while allowing you time to explore your creativity. The classes are tailored to all sorts of levels of photography skills and models of cameras while keeping things fun, informal and creative. After the three hours, you will be sure to walk away with new skills; better understanding of your camera, great new shots and maybe some new photographer buddies!

To many photographers, flash is seen as a last resort. They look at it as a necessary evil to be used only when the natural light cannot be used. If this is where you are at with your flash photography then you are missing out on using one of photography’s most creative tools. Ted's Flash Workshop will teach you not only how to get studio quality portraits with flash on camera we’ll also give you the skills necessary to shoot locations like never before.

Great portraits are everywhere; you just have to learn to see the world of light, contrast and color that is all around us. Whether you want to capture great photos of your children just for yourself, or to improve your portrait photography business our Natural Light Portrait Workshop will literally change the way you look at the world around you. You will learn how to catch dramatic, beautiful portraits anywhere, anytime with simple, easy to understand lessons. The day is very hands on, you will take some of the best portraits you have ever taken, and, better yet, you’ll learn skills that you will be able to add to your own photography to take your images to another level.

Looking at setting up a home studio or already have one and know you are not getting the most out of it.
