Event description

Description

This event helps you learn what both you and your camera are capable of by using more of its functions than just sticking with the Auto setting. We'll look at the different presets, what they really mean, as well as how to go fully manual.

For goals of simple but stunning holiday shots to abstract works of art to winning competitions yourself, my different events are designed for all abilities from beginner to advanced. If the events don't match your needs, I also run bespoke events so please do either email me or call me on 07974 058818 with any queries. All photography events come with a handout to remind you of what you've learned. If you have them, please bring a tripod, camera manual and extra batteries.

If you don't know what type of camera you have, please read on. I am not endorsing any camera mentioned, they are simply examples.

Bridge camera: this bridges the gap between point and shoot and a DSLR and you cannot change the lens. It's harder to judge lighting and exposure than on a DSLR but it's lighter and cheaper. Bridge cameras come with some preset settings and in newer bridge cameras you'll also be able to go fully manual in the settings, although the ranges will be limited compared to a DSLR. Examples include the Nikon Coolpix B700, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ330 and Canon Powershot SX60.

Compact camera: this is basically a small bridge camera, usually with less zoom. Think of a travel bridge camera with certainly some zoom, but no interchangeable lenses. Examples include the Sony Cyber-shot, Panasonic Lumix TZ80 and Nikon Coolpix.
