Camera 101 Course Introduction

If you’ve bought yourself a DSLR or any Mirrorless camera and, after unboxing, you are overwhelmed by the number of buttons and dials, and by the thickness of the instruction manual, it can be very tempting to put the manual down, flick it onto ‘Auto’ and start shooting. Whilst it is fine for some, it may not be long until you crave the creative control that inspired you to purchase a camera in the first place, however where do you begin? Short Basic Camera 101 Course then is the perfect short course for you! Our 2 Sessions Short Basic Camera 101 Course is designed for individuals who want to understand the usage of their own camera and learn the photography jargon required to create soon to be creative pictures. You will be surprised how much you’ll be able to learn in just 4 hours.

The short course is conducted over two sessions. The first will equip you with camera understanding and the second is a hands-on session to realize what photography jargon do for you in a picture.
