Do you want to know what all those settings and buttons do?

This photography session is aimed at beginners who own a DSLR camera and want to learn how to take better pictures.  I can help you get to grips with all the settings and break down the intimidating jargon with easy to understand tips.

This is an ideal course if you want to get to know the ins and outs of exposure, composition and how to take control of your camera and make the most of any situation. Students will learn how to operate their cameras, make correct exposures and understand the basics like aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

What to expect

Learning DSLR - Get off Auto - Paula Duck Photographer

This workshop is designed with a hands on approach we will both be using our cameras from the word go and I will help to break down the barriers to learning without too much technical jargon!

Whilst we will be learning online we will have our cameras to hand and will be using the environment to hand, our rooms and gardens as our inspiration. I will guide you through all those tricky terms and help you gain a full understanding of all those twiddling knobs and buttons and get you using them for your advantage.

I will  provide some PDF handouts with some of the more technical terms, for you to use whenever you like. I will also share good photographic examples to illustrate the things we have touched on during the session. If you have any follow up questions after you’ve taken this course please do get in touch and I’ll be more than happy to help.
