The Mastering your Camera Workshop focuses on giving you greater control and confidence in your use of your camera via 1-on-1 personalised tuition.
This workshop is designed for learners who are new to digital photography, and who would like to improve their skills and understanding of their camera. If you’ve been shooting on the Automatic or Scene Exposure modes (Portrait, Landscape, Action, Night etc) on your camera, then this lesson will show you how you can take control of the more creative modes on your camera. Included is a set of comprehensive notes for you to take home and review.
Duration: 3 hours
Instructor: Brett Dorron
This 1-on-1 workshop gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace, with a three-hour lesson specifically created for your own learning curve. Having your own unique workshop will ensure that you don’t become lost in “information overload” and that you have time to revisit topics where you require further assistance. You’re free to ask questions during the workshop and we’ll make sure you understand each topic before we move on to the next.
