Learn the basics of DSLR photography and camera modes, aperture, shutter speed, night photos and much more.
Those with DSLR and mirrorless camers with interchangeable lenses. This course is not suitable for compact cameras. This is an beginners level course targeted at adult learners.
As well as learning how your camera works, and how to get the best from your camera settings, Ian will demonstrate basic photo editing with fun themes each week. The course includes four evening classes and one Saturday morning at Cornwall Park to practice, look for ideal subjects, and maybe lunch at the cafe (a good excuse for food photos).
Bring your camera manual, ensure batteries are charged and ensure there is space on your memory card.
We also have a one-day workshop available called Photography DSLR Cameras Beginners Workshop.
Very good course. From knowing absolutely nothing about photography and what functions means, I now have a better understanding. Ian is good at explaining everything. Tracey 2022
The course gave me the fundamentals to start taking professional photos. Clark V March 2015
A great introduction to digital photography. Started with the basics, week by week building our knowledge and understanding. Gave us the confidence to play with the camera settings and the homework helped to reinforce this. Ian is very knowledgeable and interesting with a good sense of humour keeping the class fun.
