Are you curious about the fundamentals of photography? Do you want to learn more about your DSLR? 

During this time of self-isolation, many people are finding themselves indoors and struggling to engage with their photography. 

This four-hour online workshop will introduce you to the creative functions of your camera, while providing a basic knowledge of digital photography. You'll learn best practice for shooting and what is required to achieve the best exposures.

Focusing on the main functions of your camera – aperture, shutter speed and ISO – and their control over your creative output, you'll have the opportunity during the course to try out these functions while guided by your tutor.

This course is for absolute beginners and is available to those who have access to a DSLR or a Compact-System Camera.

Digital Photography Basics is delivered over four and a half hours with a 30 minute lunch break with a maximum class size of eight participants.
