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 Beginners DSLR 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 your camera works in full manual mode then this course is for you and we introduce lots of hands-on practical sessions as well.
If you are unsure at all, or want advice please do give me a call, email or contact to discuss your requirements.
