Photography Training Course South Wales OR The Idiot’s Guide to Using Your Camera
You got a “New Camera” so this Idiots Guide to Using Your Camera is for you!
This one day workshop will cover the really simple things you need to know to take your camera out and start using it to take better photographs. I’ll leave the Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at home for this course and concentrate on the simple stuff that gives you great pictures.
What do all those flipping buttons do!!! I’ll break it all down so you know only what you NEED to know.
The Lens and Focussing
Simple techniques to hold the camera, focus on the right spot and take sharper photographs
The what? The Aperture. The bit of the lens that mimics the human eye and either allows more light in or prevents light getting in. This is the one thing that can help bring your photographs to life and stand out from the crowd.
The Shutter Speed
Kids moving too fast and looking a little blurry (or was it the few glasses of wine?). The shutter speed is there to freeze the movement or slow it down
The Painter. He had is sussed when it comes to using light and composition so we’ll steal a few techniques form him to make your photographs look amazing.
Photography Training Course – The Nitty Gritty
£40 each or £75 per couple. Because let’s face it, if you both know how to use the camera you won’t argue, will you?!
My favourite hotel in South Wales – St. Pierre Marriott near Chepstow. Wide open parks, knarly trees, ducks, swans & other wildlife along with some really interesting architecture. Or in plain language, it looks nice.
I can run 1-1 or 1-2 days when requested so have a look at my calendar below and get in touch to book your day.
What cameras can I bring?
I don’t care. It’s all the same really. All you need is the camera, a fully charged battery (two would be better), the manual (because I bet you’ve not read it…) and a memory card. And a lens or two. And warm clothes if it’s cold.
I have experience of Nikons, Canons, Fuji’s, Sony’s, Pentax to name a few. As long as you have the manual to find the bits I talk about on your camera you will be fine.

Before signing up for training workshops with other photographers check to make sure they are qualified to deliver training to groups or on a 1-1 basis. If not; why not?
The work may be excellent, but if they can’t5 teach you the techniques you will be wasting your money.
