This 1-2-1 Beginner Photography Course is for those of you who are looking for tuition on a 1-2-1 basis

Participants will learn how to operate their cameras in manual mode, make correct exposures and understand the basic’s like aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

During the 1-2-1 Beginner Photography Course you will learn:

  • Metering – the most important function of your camera
  • ISO – photo sensitivity explained in clear, jargon free terms
  • Focus – an introduction to this elusive and deceptively tricky area of photography
  • Lenses – an in depth exploration, and how camera lenses can help add more creative control to your digital photography
  • f-stops – how to get the desired exposure using a combination of shutter speeds and f/stops

If you have little or no prior knowledge of how to use your camera in full manual mode and prefer 1-2-1 tuition then this is the course for you.
If you are unsure at all, please do give me a call, email or contact me to discuss.

"Very Informative, and given me the confidence to use the camera correctly."

by Vikki McBride on Beginner Photography Course

“Very informative, explained f-stops + shutter speed, something that always confused me! Lots of tips that I will take away and use in practise. Thank you : )”

by Ann Prebble on Beginner Photography Course

"Having been given a camera for my birthday and having absolutely no idea on the technicalities of using it, I was delighted to see on Facebook that Paul Lawrenson was holding novice classes every week in Hamstreet. Paul is very patient and thorough and in 4 hours I have learnt so much. I enjoy finding out what I can get out of the camera rather than just taking shots. I can thoroughly recommend his classes to anyone who would like to get the best out of their camera, whatever type of camera that may be"

“Paul is very friendly and helpful, even though I have a bridge camera rather than a DSLR. We worked it out to suit me. Thank you”

by Debbie Windle on Beginner Photography Course

“Really enjoyed the course, feel much more confident to use my DSLR. From an absolute base of nothing I now feel like I can get some great shots”
