For this course, it is likely that the student is shooting in auto mode and has an ambition to become more accomplished photographer. This is a first-step course, which provides the student with the initial training to help achieve your photographic aspiration.
On the day the student will learn:
Understanding & operating the camera’s auto and semi-manual settings
Image Quality (ISO & File formats)
Focusing & metering modes
Basic Composition: looking at famous work and understanding why they are considered good images
Auto and Manual Focus
Take interesting images by using methods such as controlling depth of field, freezing/blurring movement, composition methods etc.
We’ll spend the majority of the class outside taking photos together and putting the new knowledge together using our camera settings to take great photos.
This course takes place at the Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel, At the Foot of Box Hill, Dorking RH5 6BX.
