Getting to know your camera

Event info

Online course with Nigel Wilson.

You may just be starting out with your camera and would like to get a clearer understanding of the controls, or perhaps you have decided it is time to leave your automatic 'point and shoot ' modes behind.

This award winning, one day workshop will enable you to understand how to use your camera and unleash your creative potential.


- Aperture & Depth of Field
- Shutter Speed
- Lenses
- Composition
- Lighting

By the end of the day, you will be ready to make photographs rather than simply take them.

This workshop will be for 8 - 10 people only and will be the same as a face to face workshop just from the comfort of your own home.  Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with working on line the tutor will be there to guide you through each step.  Registration is at 10am and the course will commence at 10.30am - this will give the tutor time to help those who might have issues.
