Have you recently purchased a DSLR, or have had one for some time, but you never take it off the “Auto” mode because you’re not sure how to control your camera?
“Getting Started in DSLR Photography” will show you how to get off that “Auto” mode and start using your DSLR more creatively. It’s the perfect starting point if you’re brand new to DSLR photography!
Because this is a workshop for absolute beginners, we start at the very beginning – by looking at:
Then, we look at more advance camera operations, to give you creative control over your photography:
Part of this workshop includes a photo walk in Fremantle with a model — where you’ll be able to put what you have learned into practice, and be guided in your photography by your instructor.
This workshop is available on the following dates. Simply choose a date that suits you:
I did Saturday May 11th Beginners DSLR in Fremantle. It was excellent. I understand so much that was a muddled mystery before! I am very impressed that I now feel confident and eager to use Manual Mode. Seng is a natural presenter. He explains, revises, uses humour, is hands on and somehow spreads himself around the huge range of understanding and cameras. Well done. I will be taking another work shop later in the year. Great value as not a minute was wasted. (Pat Web)
Can’t thank you enough for the fantastic workshop, it was everything that I’d hoped for and a lot more. Seng, you have a great gift for communicating technical information that could be difficult in a straight forward and very engaging way. I now know what all my camera buttons and knobs do, and more importantly, how I can use them to improve my photos. Now I can take photos in all sorts of lighting conditions, with moving as well as still subjects, and get the depth of field I want – very happy! I can even read a histogram and know what RAW means – amazing!! Thanks again, I will certainly recommend this workshop to friends and family. (Elizabeth Meehan)
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the workshop experience today. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise that has given me more clarity on how to make the camera work for me. (Kerwin Bond)
Just a quick note of thanks for the workshop today…loved it! It was so informative, relaxed and such a big help…now to the backyard to practice. Please pass on my thanks to Graeme…he was a huge help to me!! (Geoff Mitchell-Burden)
I found the workshop invaluable and I should have undertaken to do a course much earlier. I found it covered a lot of the areas I was previously unsure of and the course conducted at a good pace and held my interest throughout the day. Well done and I will stay in touch for a more advanced course in the coming months. (David Jones)
Thank you very much for a fantastic introductory course yesterday. While I have been taking photographs for a long time, some of which I am really pleased, I had never ventured beyond Automatic, which is an injustice to the lovely cameras I have. You explained it very well, I did not expect moving to Manual mode to be a straightforward as you have made it. While I have no doubt many mistakes ahead of me, I am on the road now with no looking back, thanks to you. Thank you and Well Done. (Terry Walsh)
Thank you very much for a great workshop yesterday – I have learned quite a bit and will definitely be shooting in Manual mode a lot more now! (Herman Taljaard)
Thank you for such an informative and fun workshop today, had an absolute blast and learnt so so much. My camera has not really left my hand since I got home, am so eager to keep learning and stay on manual settings. (Samantha Halls-Klem)
Thanks for a great day – I really enjoyed it and have started practicing up here in the Pilbara already! I will be booking in to the travel pics course for sure! (Corrie Watts)
Thanks for the awesome workshop on Saturday. It was very informative and easy to understand. It has made me so much more excited to take my camera out and be able to comfortably set to manual mode and shoot away. Kaye the model was amazing too!! (Aaron Augustine)
I had the best day and I found you a great teacher and your enthusiasm was awesome.
I love the way you make photography look easy. I am so passionate about my photography and you have made me even more determined to get better and better. I will continue to use the information that I have learnt from you and I also love the notes you gave us as they are so informative and helpful. I do hope you come back later on in the year to do another workshop. (Ines Canale)
LOVED the workshop today! thanks for being so patient with me.. =) (Michelle Baker)
Just a few words of thanks for the great workshop on Sat 10-12-11 and the very instructive session. I learnt a lot, especially how to shoot in manual mode, which I have always been frightened to try. Once again thank for a great day. (Jim Moore)
Thanks again for a great day, I have learnt more in a day than I did on a six-week TAFE course! (Sarah Le Mare)
Many thanks for the wonderful relaxed workshop I attended on Saturday, “Getting Started in DSLR Photography”. I really felt that you dealt with the basics at a speed and level that everyone could understand. I never felt hurried or confused and left the course with a MUCH better idea of what I can do with my camera, as opposed to what my camera can do on auto! It’s greatly appreciated. (Lee Thompson)
It was a brilliant Getting Started in DSLR Photography Workshop yesterday. You had a very organised and professional approach to the workshop. The content was thorough and delivered in very clear simple terms. The use of Laura, the model, for practicing our new camera skills was fantastic. Thank you very much. I will enthusiastically recommend you and the workshop. (Shayne Leslie)
