Introduction to Photography – Beginners using DSLR or Bridge Cameras

Group Training for Beginners using Digital SLR and Bridge Cameras

Three Hour introduction – £35* per person. Perfect for beginners

A Group session for up to 10 people covering everything you need to know to get the most from your camera.

The session will cover:

  • Basic camera settings;
  • ISO,
  • Shutter Priority,
  • Aperture Priority,
  • white balance,
  • depth of field,
  • use of flash and
  • exposure compensation.

Recognising that every camera is different, this practical workshop aims to give you a better understanding of the key aspects of photography.

You’ll learn basic principles of photography, with the emphasis on practical work to help develop and consolidate your learning.

Although we can’t promise to offer personal guidance on the use of your own camera – there are far too many makes and models for us to have detailed knowledge of them all – we will do our best to provide clear advice on main features available on the majority of equipment. Using your own camera, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and apply your learning to the specific features available on your make and model.

Practical work is based around group activities within the studio designed to help you gain confidence in how different camera settings affect the final image.

You’ll also receive Handouts from each session along with ongoing support, via email, for 28 days after your workshop.

Groups have a maximum of 10 people, ensuring that you have the fullest opportunity to make the most of your session. All sessions take place in my fully equipped studio in Garforth, Leeds.

What you’ll need:

  • DSLR or Bridge camera (Compact Camera users may attend but will find some features are limited)
  • Charged battery
  • An empty memory card (don’t forget to clear any images from it in advance)
  • Instruction Manual (Full version is possible)
