An introduction to using your camera and basic editing skills – £199 per person. Perfect for beginners
A five week course for up to 6 people covering everything you need to know to get great photos from your camera and transfer them to your PC for editing.
Delivered in 2 hour sessions over a 5 week period, the course will cover:
- Understanding Basic camera settings;
- Focus Settings
- Shutter Priority,
- Aperture Priority,
- White balance,
- Depth of field,
- Use of flash
- Exposure compensation.
- How to transfer your images to your PC
- Managing files
- Demonstration of basic editing techniques
- Saving images – formats for printing, email, etc.
The practical workshops include theory supported by handouts. The emphasis is on practical work to help develop and consolidate your understanding. Practical work will be based around group activities and domonstrations within the studio. Each activity is designed to help you gain confidence in how different camera settings affect the final image.
Although we can’t promise to offer personal guidance on the use of your own camera – there are far too many makes and models for us to have detailed knowledge of them all – we will do our best to provide clear advice on main features available on the majority of equipment. Using your own camera, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and apply your learning to the specific features available on your make and model.
You’ll also receive Handouts from each session along with ongoing support, via email, for 28 days after your course ends.
Groups have a maximum of 6 people, ensuring that you have the fullest opportunity to make the most of your session. All sessions take place in my fully equipped studio in Garforth, Leeds.

- DSLR or Bridge camera
- Charged battery
- An empty memory card (don’t forget to clear any images from it in advance)
