Course outline: Basic photography

Slide CameraWe have been running our popular course now for over 4 years and it aimed towards the DSLR user who wants to become more creative by moving away from shooting in Auto or Program modes. It is a Photography course, and whilst it is hands on it does not fully teach you how to use all of the functions of your camera, we prefer you have some basic operating knowledge. We are currently running it as a full day course and the cost has been kept at $95.00 – great value!

What will I learn?

Good question.  The course covers the basics including:

  1. Focusing
  2. Metering
  3. Aperture & Shutter Speed
  4. ISO and much more…

These all help you get out of auto mode and into the creative modes on your camera.

We also cover composition, what makes a photo good, lighting, good bad and the sometimes downright ugly.  How controlling your depth of field can help to improve your photos.
