Introduction

 

Let’s agree, cameras are complicating. Camera technology has improved over the years and so is the inclusion of numerous new functions which is designed to improve the experiences of making a good picture. However, that is where the fear of learning the different function of the camera begins.

If you’ve bought yourself a DSLR or mirrorless camera and, after unboxing it, you are intimidated by the number of buttons and dials, and by the thickness of the manual, it can be very tempting to put the manual down, switch to ‘Auto’ and start shooting.

It might be fine for some, however, it may not be long until you crave the creative control that inspired you to purchase a DSLR in the first place, but where do you begin?

Join our 2 Sessions Camera 101 Workshop and overcome the fear of learning photography jargon. This workshop is designed to equip you technically with the essential understanding and complex photography jargon in a fun and easy manner. The first session will be theory-based and second being a practical hands-on session.
