Even if you’ve never picked up a digital camera before, this introduction to photography course will be easy to follow for you. Too many new photographers leave the camera in auto and bypass all the creative settings that turn snapshots in pieces of art.
Half the battle of taking a good photo is knowing your tools. There are so many buttons, dials and sliders on a digital camera that it can seem overwhelming to remember everything – but do you NEED to know everything straight away? NO!
We’ll show you only what you need to know in these early days of your photography journey.
By the end of the course, you’ll be on the right track to feeling more confident and clear about what those dials and buttons do.
You’ve heard the phrase ‘point-and-shoot’ but there’s more to photography then just expecting a great image to appear on your screen everytime.
Knowing where to place objects in your frame, and why, is a powerful skill to learn for any photographer – and it doesn’t take long to understand the basics either!
Without using composition effectively you’ll be stuck taking snapshots rather than the works of art you’ve been dreaming of taking with your camera.
Once you’ve learnt more about your camera and how it works it’s time to pull those skills together and start taking great photos.
We’ve got 4 photo projects you can do in your home and garden. They are budget-friendly, and simple to set up, but will result in fantastic images to keep you motivated and inspired as a photographer.
Follow our step-by-step directions to capture abstract, floral and food photographs that will look amazing!
