What you will learn
The benefits of shooting manually, how to control aperture and shutter speeds and how they affect the image, focus modes and selective focusing, understanding lens focal length, depth of field, ISO and white balance.

What camera do you need
DSLR or mirrorless cameras are ideal as you will need to use the manual functions of the camera. The smaller ‘bridge cameras’ may also be used but we do recommend checking with us before making a booking.

Loan cameras are also available plus we can provide you with a tripod on the day if you do not already have one.

Your style of presentation suits me well, and I appreciate that you gave us all time to understand the concepts and then put them into practice. I will definitely be seeing you at a follow up course.
