1 Day Improvers Digital Photography Course (Classroom)
Aimed at those wishing to improve their basic knowledge of photography

  One Day INtroduction to Digital SLRs

This 1 Day Improvers Digital Photography Course is aimed at those who want to learn more about the settings on and inside their camera. Any brand of Digital SLR is suitable for this course.

The course is made up of 5 separate sessions: 3 Camera Sessions, 1 Field Trip, 1 Photo Critiquing Session of the shots from the Field Trip.

The course takes place over 1 day (dates etc here). At the end of the course you will be able to understand and use; depth of field; shutter speeds to freeze or blur movement; flash and how to use it properly.

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. Tripods would be helpful for this field trip.

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 50 pages of full colour, detailed notes for the course.
