Beginners Photography - One Day Course
This course will teach you fundamental technical and creative tools to help you create stunning photographs with your DSLR camera. It is aimed at beginners who usually shoot in ‘Auto’ but would like to begin to use priority modes and improve their creative compositions.

Everybody learns differently, so you will have the opportunity to develop your skills through both theory and practice (weather permitting). The day will be fun and interactive, with a small group size (4-8 students) to ensure you receive one-to-one tuition time.

We will simplify photography jargon to help you get started

Resolution, file formats, lenses and sensors

Myth-busting Digital photography

You will learn about exposure and become confident in priority modes

Manual and autofocus

Exposure and metering

Histogram review 

Aperture and depth of field

We will provide you with some resources to support your photography beyond the course

My approach to photography

Avoid wasting money on photography gear

You will need to bring your own Digital Camera (DSLR, Mirrorless or Camera with Manual Settings)

Bring along your camera along with fully charged batteries and memory cards

NO previous experience is required, however you must be  18+ years old to attend the course.

We will NOT cover post-production editing as this requires its own separate course.
