Basic Photography Course

KPS is planning to run a Basic Photography Course, commencing June 19 2021 (Covid restrictions permitting).

Run by Peter Knight, this course is ideal for new members that want to get to know their camera and the fundamentals of photography or even for more experienced photographers who just want a refresher and a few points.

For example, many people know to close down their aperture to get more stuff in focus. However, there is a problem with a too small (or closed down) aperture. Take our Basic Photography Course to find out what this problem is.
Don't have a clue what an aperture is? Take our Basic Photography Course to find out what it is and why you should care.


Bookings are now open on our website for KPS members only.   If you are currently not a KPS member but are interested, you will need to join (Full member $70.00), then sign up for the course at an additional cost of $60.00.

Membership is for 12 months from your sign up date and includes all the benefits of being a member of KPS.

Max number in the class will be 10.
