Landscape Photography - Guadalupe State Park - 10am
A beautiful sunset can be enjoyed and appreciated by everyone. Photographers refer to the last (dusk) hours of the day as the "golden hours" when the light is at its best for photography. Our light meters can be thrown off by the strong amount of light hitting our sensor, so we will be exploring manual mode and exposure compensation to intensify the colours of our sunset.

We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around San Antonio. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

We also occasionally hold more formal beginners classes which last 3 hours and are limited to 6 people. These classes are perfect for complete beginners who want to start using manual mode and those who want to brush up on the basics. See the dates below.

Join the San Antonio Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

Portraiture Photography - Landa Library - 7:30pm
Portrait photography uses lighting, backgrounds and posing to capture the personality of a person. Portrait photography is one of the most useful types of photography to learn because there are so many photography genres that involve photographing people; weddings, documentary/photojournalism, newborn photography, corporate headshots and editorial work, to name just a few. Even if you're only interested in taking "everyday" candid snapshots of your family and friends, using portrait photography techniques can help to improve them.

Panoramic Photography - Enchanted Rock State Park - 10:00am
Panoramas visually enhance many types of photography, such as travel and architecture images. The way they allow the viewer's eye to sweep across the landscape, gives them a more inclusive view than people normally see in the average rectangular photograph. It's important to plan out your picture before you shoot it. Where is your panorama going to start and where is it going to end? It's important to structure your panoramas carefully, paying close attention to the composition of the elements.
