This course is an essential learning experience for anyone who has either recently bought a DSLR or who has had one for sometime but only uses it in the automatic settings.
You will learn about the controls you really need to know, We will show you how to get the very best results by understanding how your camera works, showing which settings you need to understand and how to use them. In class, with a slide show, we will explain what you need to do and then, weather permitting, we will take our cameras out for practical sessions to put those lessons learned in class to good use. The day is broken down into classroom and practical sessions, the former explaining by lecture and slideshows, the latter by hands on practise with a tutor there to help you understand what you need to do. Class sizes are no more than 10 students so there is lots of opportunity for 121 help when you need.
The course will cover the most important controls your camera has, these will include use of the various mode dial settings including Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Program Mode. We will also learn about the importance of ISO settings. We will cover the various focus functions, shooting modes, white balance and flash settings. You will get specific advice on subject areas such as quality settings so that you have a very sound grounding in the use of your cameras.
Photography is not all about camera technique, it is also about how you see and we will explain some basic rules of composition that will help you to make great looking pictures.The day will be a great learning experience and good fun, you will leave with understanding how to use your cameras to make the pictures you have always wanted to take.
