About the Course

If you’re a beginner and using your camera on Auto, or trying various settings with mixed results, this workshop will give you a good introduction to and a foundation in photography in just one day. All digital camera types from compact to DSLR are suitable apart from smartphones.

Learn how to create blurred backgrounds in your portrait and close-up shots to make your subject really stand out, and take detailed landscape photos, by shooting in Aperture Priority. Find the fastest and simplest way to access your camera’s features, how shutter speed affects your photos and how to avoid camera shake. Learn how to add interest to your photos with our useful guidance on composition and put it all into practice with our practical exercises with close-up, portrait & landscape shots followed by a guided review of your images.
