 +{{ :​creative.jpg?​200|}}
 +===== Description =====
 +This is the same precursor to a series of photography workshops that will be given by Lamba Labs member and photography enthusiast, Mahdi Zahreddine. ​
 +This introductory workshop will introduce the basic principles of digital photography (theory) including: how a camera works, a camera'​s anatomy, as well as a camera'​s major components and accessories.
 +During the series of workshops, you'll also explore the less automatic and more hands-on side of photography and learn about exposure, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and white balance settings.
 +Mahdi will explain some photography concepts such as: composition and framing, focus (auto vs. manual – in light and dark conditions),​ the bokeh effects, as well as noise and distortion.
 +He'll also share some simple tips like the rule of thirds, tilt shift and blurring, depth of field utilization,​ and more!
 +You'll also get to discuss and possibly experiment with some creative photography styles, like: light painting, time-lapse, water drop collision, orbits and steelwool, water splash captures, and star trails.
