An entry level course to get you started with photography
If you are new to photography, or just want to improve on your current knowledge, the photography basics course covers the following steps in a one hour session.
Basic camera settings
Understand the basic settings on your digital camera and how they can help you capture the perfect photograph.
Learn how to frame your image in camera and take the photograph from the best angle.
Pick the right mode optimised for your subject and conditions. Learn what each one does and when to use it.
Use the right exposure for different scenes. Sunrise, indoors, night sky or bright sunlight.
Advanced Camera Skills
Learn how to use your camera to its full potential
Designed as the next step from the Photography basics course, you will learn to visualise the picture that you want to create before pressing the shutter button.
RAW vs JPEG: What's the best format?
Understand the benefits of each image format and when it’s best to use each one. What to do with RAW files once you download your images on to your computer.
Control depth of field in your image with the understanding of how aperture works. From sharp landscapes to beautiful portraits that stand out from the background.
Choose the best shutter speed for the scene or subject you are photographing. How does shutter speed affect the exposure and how to cope with low light.
Off camera lighting
Take control of the light in your photo and light your model perfectly. Use constant light, strobe or a reflector to illuminate the scene perfectly.
What you leave out of the scene can be equally as important as what you include. Learn how to chose the best angle to take your photo and use the scenery to guide the viewer through your image.
Creating a beautiful image requires skill in post processing
