One to One digital photography courses in Worcestershire
A DSLR (digital single lens reflex camera) has become the standard professional digital SLR camera to own. Professional photographers and advanced amateur photographers buy DSLR cameras because of the range of lenses available and the excellent high-quality results they provide. Our range of digital photography courses range from the Beginners Digital Photography Course through to the Advanced Adobe Lightroom Course. The courses are very relaxed and will help you understand all aspects of photography including shutter speeds, apertures and ISO and help you master your digital cameras settings. If you need one to one tuition or would like to bring a friend along I can arrange an individual course for you anywhere you like in the three counties area.
Which camera should I buy? There are so many to choose from.
If you are about to buy a new digital camera think about the main camera brands first and which camera manufacturers have been around for a long time making DSLR digital cameras. Canon, Nikon and Pentax have a long history of making traditional SLR cameras and digital cameras from point and shoot to professional DSLR's. I use Canon equipment as the range of lenses is vast, and the quality of images and ease of use is second to none. I offer individual tuition for the Canon photography course. Nikon digital SLR cameras are now also excellent and Pentax and Sony are getting better as they embrace the professional world. I have all my equipment available if you would like to try before you buy, and so if you need to borrow a DSLR or lens this can be arranged. I can also visit the camera shop in Worcester with you to give you advice about buying new and used equipment.
Why do I need to come on a digital photography course?
I think that attending a photography training course for digital cameras is very important, if you would like to get the best results from your new digital camera without having to spend hours reading books and magazines. Film cameras had all the technology built into the film, this made it easier to learn photography (in my opinion). Your digital camera will have a number of different modes that may be confusing you. I believe in learning about the basics first. shutter speeds, apertures, ISO, white balance and the histogram are the building blocks that you need to understand to get the best results from your camera. Controlling colour and white balance is very important, and using RAW capture is always necessary to capture the full tonal range and all the important information from your cameras sensor.
