The Digital Photography Weekend covers all the essential information you need to put you firmly on the road to becoming a competent digital photographer. The courses takes you step by step through all the essential tools and techniques to give you a solid understanding of how your camera works and how best to use it. We investigate all the key camera settings to give you even greater control of your camera and help you to take great shots.
These friendly, fun and informal courses are an excellent balance of theory and practice. The maximum of 6 people on each course enables individual attention.
Try before you buy. If you haven’t yet bought a camera or are about to upgrade to a DSLR, you can borrow one for the course – how good is that!
“An excellent course. As a relative beginner with a Canon EOS 600D I was keen to learn to move away from the automatic mode. The thought of ploughing through the manual filled me with dread – I needed to be shown what to do. Tony, the course leader, was brilliant. His friendly and supportive approach meant that the group members were able to assimilate the information and have the opportunity to practise what we had been shown. The small group size was a real bonus. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I feel that I now have the confidence to use my camera in manual. I understand so much more, not only about the technical aspects of the camera, but about elements such as composition etc.”
