Beginners Photography Course

Learn how to master the essential camera controls in just 4 lessons

Say ‘Goodbye!’ to Auto!

Have you got a great camera, but get frustrated trying to figure out all those buttons when it doesn’t produce the photos you want? 

Have you always longed to move off Automatic, but you’re not sure where to start?   

Come and join our inspiring Beginners Digital Photography Course (4 x 3Hr Workshops) and finally take control of your camera and take the kind of photos you’ve always wanted.

The course will be hands-on, interactive and most importantly fun. Prepare to enjoy photography like never before!

We’ll cover all the basics:  creative composition techniques, how to harness the available light, controlling the camera so you know which button to press and when, how to rescue and enhance your photos afterwards, what makes a good versus bad photo, and so much more. During each workshop, you’ll apply what you’ve learned in practical exercises and you’ll get one-to-one feedback on how you can improve your photos.

Karen teaches small groups of 3 to 10 students so you’ll get the individual attention you need and you never have to worry about being left behind or feeling too shy to ask a question.
