Bespoke Digital Camera Course

With personal tuition, we work at your pace, at your home or at a location of your choice. We will explore your camera’s functions and cover the fundamentals to improve your photography. Our aim is to get you using your camera to its full potential and to enhance your photography skills in general.

We suggest the following 2 lesson structures:

LESSON 1
KNOW YOUR CAMERA

FOCUS
Learn how to make your subjects really stand out and how to create detailed landscape shots using Aperture Priority. Learn how shutter speed affects your photos and how to avoid camera shake by adjusting the ISO.
