1 Day Beginners Photography Course (Classroom)
Aimed at those who use their camera mainly on auto
  One Day Beginners Digital Photography Course

This One Day Beginners Digital Photography Course is aimed at those who want to learn how to use the pre-set buttons on their camera to help them take better photographs. The course will also help those who want to learn how to see a better picture with their eye and compose it properly in the camera.

Any kind of digital camera is suitable for this course including SLRs, Compact Cameras and Bridge Cameras (see here for information on the different types).

The course is made up of 6 separate sessions: 3 Camera Sessions, 1 Field Trip, 1 Photo Critiquing Session of the shots from the Field Trip and a 1 tutorial on using the software that we give you at the start of the course.

Field Trip
After lunch we will head outdoors for our field trip. Each student will be advised on how to use their own camera properly and how to take better shots.

Full Colour, Illustrated PDF's
Carefully worded and appropriately illustrated PDF's are an integral part of our courses. Because lectures tend to have an effect which lasts only a short while, particularly if no notes are taken, we believe our pdfs are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting (notes supplied via direct download as soon as you book the course). Between photography and computer notes you will receive over 30 pages of full colour, detailed notes for the course.
