GROUP WORKSHOP – Essential Camera Skills Course

Have you got a DSLR, CSC or Bridge camera? Don’t know your ISO from your Aperture? Take control of your camera and move off the Auto setting allowing you to get the shots you really want.

For beginners and improvers, with this course I will help you to break down the science of capturing images and to give you more confidence in the handling of your camera by explaining the 3 basic principles which make up exposure:

  • Aperture
  • ISO
  • Shutter Speed

I will teach you how to balance these to get the results that you want, consistently. It will soon become second nature once you start thinking about these.

Understand camera features from focus to white balance and learn to set your camera up based on the shots you’d like to take.

Theory is all well and good, but we need to put this into practice. So, we will be doing some practical sessions so you don’t get too bogged down in the theory and put what you’ve learned to use and go out and take some photos.

With 10 years experience in photography, from event photography to weddings and portrait sessions and onto commercial photography for businesses; I have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge in different areas and can pass on invaluable tips to help ease your path into photography.

The photography training course will be held at the Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham in North Norfolk, which is a 700 acre natural park combining stunning areas of wetland, gardens, meadows, farmland and a conservation centre. Our base for the day will be the fabulous Garden Room, which was the former Springwatch recording studio and has now been transformed into a stunning new venue.
