Event Details

Our Intensive Photography Course for beginners, led by the London based company DSLR Photography, explains the science and art of photography from the ground up with almost constant hands-on activities. It will get you familiar with your digital camera like the DSLR, Mirrorless system or Bridge, in no time and allow you to start taking real control over your photography.


Who is this programme for?

The course is suitable for everyone from the complete novice who has virtually zero experience and knowledge of photography to those who have owned a digital camera for a while but are still struggling to get off the automatic programmes and need that vital kick-start to help them understand the fundamentals and get their creative photography underway.


Choose this course if you’d like more extended opportunities for hands-on practice, feedback, and a firmer, more rounded grasp and understanding of your camera.

What you will learn?

This course not only explains the basic science and nature of photography, but also introduces lots of hands-on practical exercises during which you will learn how to control and combine all different camera functions creatively. At the end of the course we will provide comprehensive handouts and photographic cheat-sheets.


  • Get to know your camera better:
  • Learn how your camera works and all the essential buttons.
  • What are the different camera functions and how to set it up for best results.
  • What is the difference between raw and JPEG images.
  • All the technical aspects of photography – what is the aperture, f-stops, shutter speeds and ISO?
  • How to get creative control over your camera by using manual mode (M), so that a camera takes the pictures the way you want!
  • Perfect exposure every time? Learn how your camera sees the light and how to read your light meter.
  • How to take control of what’s in focus in your images using focus points.
  • How to set the right depth of field, from portraits with a blurred background to detailed landscape shots, by choosing the appropriate Aperture.
  • How to capture moving objects without blur, from children at play to sports and wildlife.
  • Colours – how to make sure they’re the colour you want them to be.
  • How to cope with difficult and low light conditions
  • Learn simple concepts and rules that can dramatically improve your photography: “rule of thirds”, “leading lines”, “filling the frame”, ..
  • Get plenty of tips on how to better compose your pictures – framing, focal length and angle of view.
  • Practical lens guide – choosing the best lens for your photography needs, and desired creative effect.
  • How to clean and troubleshoot your camera.
  • Camera and equipment purchase recommendations.


What to bring and camera suitability:

  • All DSLR, mirrorless compact systems and bridge cameras are suitable as long as they allow full manual control by selecting M on mode dial or through the camera menu.
  • As long as you are able to control the aperture, shutter speeds and ISO – you will enjoy your course! All the technical aspects of photography we will be talking about and the practical exercises will be relevant.
  • All mirrorless cameras from FujifilmSonyOlympusPanasonicPentaxNikonCanon etc.. are very welcome
