IF YOU ARE STARTING OUT IN PHOTOGRAPHY OR JUST USING AUTO SETTINGS AND WANT TO GET CONFIDENT WITH YOUR CAMERA AND IMPROVE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND PICTURES - THIS IS FOR YOU!!

Mike will teach participants how to use their own cameras in the best way to get excellent results every time they use them. YOU NEED a Digital SLR for this course!!

The course will be based in the Platform3 studio but we will get "out and about" in the city as much as possible to make pictures - see below.

Covering: Camera controls [Manual and Automatic], Apertures, Shutter speeds, ISO settings, White Balance, Autofocus, File formats [RAW or Jpeg and whats best] and digital cards and formatting etc
We will do practical demonstrations in the studio of all these with participants using their own cameras to do so.

Week 2. Out and about! [weather permitting and in studio if not!
After a short intro in the studio we will get out and start taking some pics using what we learned in the first week. We will assess pictures as we go and look at how light works and how we can use it to get the best results with our cameras.
Photographic technique to find the best ways to take pictures of different types in varying conditions.

Week 3: More shooting outdoors [or indoors if weather is bad!] but with an emphasis on Construction of pictures
