Basic Photographic Workshop/Course

For me it is very important to give everybody a fair chance to practice his/her photography in the best possible way. We all know that there are a lot of photography courses out there. So what makes mine different from others?

The answer is very simple and straightforward. I've got more than 13 year experience in what I do. My course is only personal and practical experience in the photographic world. Around about the year 1998 when I started I went with my Minolta film camera to one of the best known photographers in my home town at that stage and I asked for some guidance. You know what he (and other professional photographers) told me? Sorry but this is something that you must figure out yourself. And I did! It took me a few 36 film rolls!!
This basic photography course is for that person that started from scratch. All he/she needs is a Camera that he/she can control manually.

I can give this course on a one on one basis for individuals or at a school or college for 20 to 30 people. It's very easy to understand and it's straightforward. Here are some of the topics we will cover in this course:

  1. Little bit of camera History
  2. How does a DSLR work?
  3. Image sensors
  4. Mega pixels
  5. ISO
  6. File formats
  7. What to check before you shoot
  8. Metering modes
  9. White Balance
  10. Drive modes
  11. Shooting modes
  12. Aperture and shutter
  13. Focus modes
  14. AF area modes
  15. Rule of thirds
  16. Controlling exposure
  17. Working with light
  18. Flash photography with off camera flash

All this will be explained one on one on your own camera. If you dont have one then we will supply one for you for the duration of the workshop.
