Bought a digital SLR camera but wondering why you’re not getting good photos, like the advertisements promised? Time to stop using the preset scene modes on your camera. My PhotoClasses are hands-on digital photography classes for small groups. PhotoClasses are short, affordable, single 4-hour sessions, designed for busy people who may not be able to commit a long stretch of weekends at one go.
My PhotoClass is an introduction to photography, where I will give instructions on what camera settings to use in specific situations, and provide guidance on framing and composition, using real-world examples. Participants perform photography exercises which will help them achieve a deep understanding simply because they did it themselves, instead of just being shown what they should do.
Beginner to Intermediate.
* the Exposure Triangle (Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO)
* how each element in this triangle affects exposure
* getting properly exposed subjects

* the right white balance
* controlling depth of field
* focusing techniques
* choosing the right lens for the subject
* getting sharp pictures
* slow-shutter techniques
* fill-in flash
* rear-curtain flash

Have a look at my basic photography tutorial and when you’re ready for more, sign up for the class!
I will show you how I shoot using my camera, and you will shoot the same thing using your own camera. I use a very organic approach to teaching, not restricted to a specific syllabus, but a very practical “how-to” guide to tackling frequently encountered challenges in photography, eg. backlighting or fast-moving children. Brief notes with diagrams will be provided.
I would expect participants to own a digital camera, because this is a practical session. Ideally your camera would be a digital SLR. If you own a compact digital camera, it should be at least a model which has a full Manual mode. A tripod and external flash are encouraged, although not compulsory.
SIZE OF PHOTOCLASS
8 persons. Keeping the group small allows more personal attention. Participants will have their session secured once they have paid.
OPTIONAL PRIVATE CLASSES
I can provide one-on-one coaching if required. Please contact me for rates.
If you prefer week-day classes, please contact me, and I will compile a list. I will only start a week-day class if there are a minimum of 6 persons in a class.
If you are looking for post-processing (Photoshop) classes, please contact me, and I will compile a list. I will only start a post-processing class if there are a minimum of 3 persons in a class.
