Introduction to DSLR Photography

As a photographer, your camera becomes an extension of you… get to know your camera inside and out


Looking through the numerous settings of a camera can be overwhelming, symbols and technical words that do not always translate to the novice photographer. In this course, seasoned photographers walk participants through getting to know a camera and making the most of it. The course covers the basics such as modes, aperture, shutter, exposure, and composition and teaches students how to maximise these modes in different situtions. This course offers both theoretical and practical photography training to turn a happy snapper to a competent photographer!
