Looking back on when I was first learning photography, mostly on my own, I think having the chance to talk to and learn from another photographer would have been a great opportunity. I did do one photography seminar, but it was with a large group, so we only had limited hands on time and even less time to ask questions. That got me to thinking about what would have helped me more: personally I learn best through doing and asking questions and is the concept on which I based this course.
This photography course is aimed at those just starting out or looking to expand on or better understand their basic photography knowledge. I’ve made the course one-on-one or for a small group of a maximum of 4 people, ensuring that you (or everyone) get a chance to ask questions as we go through the basics in photography. I’ll cover things like exposure, f-stop, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, composing and rule of thirds, focal length, depth of field, different priority settings, JPG vs RAW and much more. This will give you the tools to better understand each individual aspect and how they all work together to create your images. Once we’ve covered those things, and answered any questions you have along the way, we will shoot! Nothing really shows you how things work than by seeing them in action. You’ll get to use the basics we’ve covered to create your own images, and again, ask any questions you have while doing it!
At the end you should have a firm grasp on the essential basics in photography, a better understanding of how they all work together and feel more confident using your camera.
If you have any questions regarding the course please feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to talk to you!
