This course teaches – in easy, clear terms – how to use the settings on your camera so you can progress to the next level of creative photography.

We explain the basics of aperture, shutter speed, ISO and how to achieve correct exposure. We show you how to see and use natural light to create great portraits. In this half-day course there will be time to put into practice your new skills, with the instructors there to guide you through a location-based practical shoot.
