Composition Basics

Is this course suitable for an absolute beginner?

The course was created with the absolute beginner in mind. The only thing you need for this course is a willingness to learn new things.

How do I know if my camera is suitable?

This course was not designed for any particular type of camera. It’s suitable for anyone with a smartphone through to a high end digital camera.

I am unable to run the course for people who bring a film camera as we need to assess the images after you captured them.

Camera Theory

Is this course suitable for an absolute beginner?

Not this course. The Camera Theory course is designed for people who can use their camera but just want the theory behind the settings.

For an absolute beginner, I’d suggest my Camera Basics course as we spend a lot of time using your camera and showing you how it works.

How do I know if my camera is suitable?

My session is designed for people who have a Digital SLR (DSLR) and ‘mirrorless cameras’ such as ‘micro four thirds’. A guide is that if the lens on the camera can be removed, your camera is suitable. You must be able to set your camera on manual mode so you can adjust the Aperture, ISO, and Shutter speed.

If you’re not sure, contact me.

My session is not suitable for compact digital cameras or smartphones.

On what days do you run the sessions?
