This class can be purchased as a stand alone unit or as part of our 8 week Aus Photo Academy Getting Started – Introductory Photography Course. Check the full details here.

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

I’ll explain the different camera modes and the basics of aperture, shutter speed, ISO and how to achieve correct exposure. We’ll explore when and how to use each, and even how to see and use natural light to create great portraits. This two hour course will arm you with newfound knowledge and insights into photo-making that you will put into everyday practice and take with you on your entire photographic journey.
