Learn Photography

Beginners Photography - Getting Off "Auto"

Course description:

Learn how to use your camera so you no longer rely on n "Auto". Learn how to use Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO and understand why and when you need to change them. Learn how to compose your photo and how to use focus area modes. All these skills will help you take fantastic photographs!

Teaching approach:

I feel the best way to learn is by practising. I set exercises which are very hands-on and practical so you can start using your camera straight away. All techniques are explained as we go along rather than all at the beginning, this is so you do not become overwhelmed with theory, but rather learn by doing it yourself. I pace the course around your needs and progress.

Course program:

Each lesson can be tailored around your interests and development. You do not need to know anything about photography to start, we will build on your knowledge and experience as we go along.

If you already know the basics of photography then I will help you develop in the areas that interest you most.
