The day

We will meet at Church Lane in Tavistock, starting out with a short session inside covering camera lingo, jargon, menus, and swiftly move into the technical aspects of your camera settings and how that magic box in your hand creates a photograph.


Heading outside we will have a session covering two really creative ways we can make interesting images. First, we will work with aperture and controlling Depth of Field in our images. The second will be shutter speed, controlling the movement we would like to creatively capture in our final images, depending on our subject.

By the afternoon you will be working with fully manual settings, 100% driving the camera toward the final images you envisioned.

The last part of the session we will upload your top image of the day and I will go through some basic processing tips to make the best out of your images.

Come along and join me for the day and begin the journey to getting those images you've always dreamed of!
