DSLR Photography for Beginners

A concise beginner’s introduction to you DSLR camera. Starting with the absolute basics, you’ll soon be avoiding Auto, managing your menus and composing with confidence.

You’ll be shown the settings you need and the settings you should avoid, how to focus on what you want to focus on, how to work with light (ambient and flash), white balance, adjusting your exposure, choosing the right file type and size and how to easily improve your composition.

We will end the course with an overview of how to make the most of your photographs with widely available photo-editing software.

This course is suitable for DSLR cameras only (and not bridge/hybrid cameras).
