Get started with DSLR creative photography workshop in Henstridge near Stalbridge, Somerset and Dorset (beginners level)

Creative Photography for beginners to DSLR, mirrorless, micro two thirds, or bridge cameras. Lots of practical knowledge linked to understanding your camera.

About the Course

Taught by a professional photographer with over 15 years of working experience, this is a practical workshop day packed with information about starting and improving your DSLR photography.

Time: Arrive for 10am start - workshop will finish for 4pm.

We will be looking at the technical aspects of the DSLR camera, such as settings and functions but will also be looking at how we can be creative with our photographic skills.

We will be be discussing the fundamentals of composition, depth of field, aperture, shutter speed and ISO features but, perhaps more importantly, we will be breaking the day up with regular practical photography sessions which we will then review.

Maximum number on workshop is 4 people. This class is suitable for adults only please.

We will look at the fundamentals of photography in detail - light, composition and subject - and will also touch on a wide range of topics such as using natural light, lenses and other equipment, landscape photography, action photos, close up and macro images, black and white photography, storing and organisation of image files... and more!

The workshop tuition, advice and guidance given by Sally on the day form the basis for this workshop.

The workshop tuition, advice and guidance given by Sally on the day form the basis for this workshop.

You will need a DSLR camera or micro 2/3rds camera. Rule of thumb is that if you have interchangeable lenses then this is a workshop which is suitable for you - contact me before booking if you have a bridge camera and we will look at suitability.

Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the workshop. Please bring your lunch, snacks and any other refreshments which you may like, as well as a travel mug or similar please.

Having owned DSLR cameras for over 15 years I figured it was time to get off Auto settings! This course was fantastic. Sally not only gave us the technical know how but more importantly the practical reasons to use the different settings on the cameras. I would highly recommend this course and Sally.

I can't thank Sally for this course enough, it opened my eyes to what I am able to achieve with my camera. A well balanced course, both informal yet professional with easy steps to help you get to grips with the technology you're learning. Beautiful venue and a fantastic price!
Ready for the next level! X

This course helped me to understand my camera more and use it more confidently and creatively. Sally is very knowledgable and has time to ensure everyone is learning about their own camera. The venue is great for creativity and the ambience Sally creates is relaxed and friendly. I would definitely recommend this course

Absolutely brilliant day, I would highly recommend to beginners. Set at a great venue with lots of interesting subject matter to photograph. Sally was informal and makes you feel relaxed as soon as you arrive. Great balance of technical vs practical throughout the day. I came away feeling inspired and can already see a difference in my photographs.

Fabulous day spent learning not only about my camera (without all the confusing technical terms) but about how to achieve a great photograph using the technology within the camera.
Nice small group and very relaxed. Sally is very patient and a great teacher. I would highly recommend this one day course, it's excellent for the beginner and for those with a little knowledge

This was a relaxed group, there was a lot to take in, in a short time, sally made it easy to understand all the camera functions and didn’t mind going back over things. I feel I gained confidence in my ability to use my camera to its best.
I would recommend this course to complete beginners or someone who has a little knowledge but wants to learn more about composition, light etc
