Better Photography for You

Ref: 2517

Have you always wondered what half the buttons on your camera actually do? Join me to discover how to use them properly and produce impressive photographs, even as a complete beginner. Gain useful technical knowledge and get expert creative guidance in easy-to-understand language. An ideal first step before taking your photography further.

I aim to help you understand your camera’s settings and learn about shutter speeds, aperture, and depth of field. I’ll cover exposure, ISO, and your light meter and how to get your subject properly in focus. I’ll also touch on using different lenses, filters, tripods, and other accessories, then we’ll bring all these things together so you can make more flattering  portraits, freeze action in your photographs and understand how to improve your landscapes. All types of digital SLR’s, bridge and mirrorless cameras are suitable for this course.

You will need access to a camera and user guide/manual, and a memory card to review various controls and features and to take your own photos. You will also require access to a connected device to participate in the online classes by Zoom, and the means to share the photos you take on the course (2-3 per week, weeks 2,3 and 4).  You may also wish to have paper and a pen ready to take notes.
