Course description

This intense and condensed one day photography course is aimed at complete beginners who own a Digital camera, DSLR or mirrorless and want to maximise its potential.

The course is set in a classroom environment and participants are taught theory which is supported by creative practical exercises inside the classroom and also outdoors around the local area.

Each participant on the digital photography course will learn how to fully operate their digital camera as well as understand the fundamentals of photography, such as how to make correct exposures and understand the relationship between Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO.

    ‘Really great course which teaches you everything you need to know about your DSLR camera and how to get the most out of it. I went there because I use photography for work, but after the course, I really wanted to take up photography as a hobby, it was just so inspiring!’
    ★★★★★  Anne Nordheim

    ‘I was really pleased, I came away from the day with all the fundamental tools to inspire me to use my camera properly and get off the auto mode. Our tutor was fabulous- enthusiastic, patient, explained everything really well and made the day fun. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to move up a gear in using your camera and being more creative behind the lens.’
