Digital photography – an introductory class

Intended for new camera owners (or anyone who wants to start to use their camera properly), this class will teach you the basics.

We’ll teach you how to make the camera do what you want (or at least start to understand why it doesn’t!).

We’ll cover at least the following topics:

  • Exposure – sensitivity (ISO) / aperture / shutter speed (and why the world is grey)
  • Controlling sharpness – the effects of shutter speed and aperture
  • Focal lengths and their impact on your images.
  • White balance (or why the colours are off)
  • JPEG vs raw files.
  • Automatic modes vs. manual
  • Composition

… and wherever your questions take us.

Of course you need a camera, but it doesn’t have to be a digital SLR – high-end compacts and the new mirror-less systems are suitable too.

And no, the class isn’t just for owners of new shiny gear – we’ll not turn you away even if you’ve had the camera in the cupboard for years.

The class is taught in our studio in West Lothian, with an ample supply of tea and coffee at hand.

Price: £90 (includes VAT, payable in advance).

This class is taught one-to-one and lasts approximately 2 1/2 hours.
