This is a one-day practical hands-on workshop aimed at beginners. Designed to get you on the path to using your DSLR or mirrorless digital camera with full understanding and creative control.
We’ll help you move away from ‘Auto’ and learn how and when to use your cameras other modes to capture personal and unique photographs. Modern cameras are superb image-capture tools. They’re quite smart and will often get things ‘right’ if you let them do their own thing.
We’ll start with a run through the important camera controls and later, in the field, learn how to bring them together. It may seem a little confusing in theory, but it will make sense when put into practice.
To get the full benefit of more advanced courses and workshops, it's important you understand how to make your camera do precisely what you want it to. This workshop will give you confidence and set you on the right path to capture great images.
This is designed as a basic level workshop, it is well suited to those wishing to master shooting in manual mode or just starting out in photography. If you have already mastered the basics and can shoot in manual mode please look at Photo School 2: Getting Creative or Long Exposure Landscape
