What Will You Learn ?

 

 

A typical 1 to 1 day of tuition will start with meeting up at your home or you can visit us in Grimsby.

 

Over a coffee, we'll go through the camera. What all the buttons do, where to change settings - basic camera skills.

 

We will briefly discuss exposure and metering modes - looking at what is best for different situations, when and how to use flash, how to use the ISO settings to make the best of situations and white balance.

 

Whilst in doors we'll do some portrait photography and skills for indoor photography.

 

We will then go to a few different locations to go through all settings on the camera. We'll explain what shutter and aperture priority are and how to manually set up and use your camera. We'll look at aperture settings and composition of both landscapes and people.

 

You'll use your camera throughout so by the end of the day you will be able to use all the buttons and settings to meet every situation you'll come across. If you don't use them at least you'll know what they'll do.

 

Finally we'll return to your home or our office. You'll learn how to copy images from your camera, best ways to store and backup your photographs and time permitting will finish with some editing. Finally we'll get your booked in for your refresher training in 1-2 weeks time.

 

Before we meet again, we'll expect you to go out and use your camera, take lots of photographs and enjoy the skills you've have been taught.

 

At the refresher traning we'll have a quick overview, look at your photographs and improve where we can and go over anything you have forgotten or struggled with. We'll also spend some time on the computer editing images.
