Learn to master your camera's manual mode, in picturesque Adelaide. This city of churches has well preserved colonial architecture and nature at its best by the river's edge - perfect for honing your photography skills on.

In this class, you'll learn to master aperture, ISO and shutter speed settings, to improve your photo composition, and you'll become adept at travel photography (street portraits, architecture, still life, abstract, landscapes, nature). You'll get plenty of exercises to challenge your thinking and skills, and get individual feedback to accelerate your learning.

Rain or shine, this class will go ahead, as there are sheltered spots available for use.

Karen Drieberg Apr 2022

Our class was made up of people of varying levels of photographic experience and interests, and everyone had a different camera. Sarah was able to guide each of us from the basic principles of photography through to an understanding of taking photos with the manual function on our cameras. We visited several locations to progressively work on our skills, and the group had a friendly and supportive atmosphere. This class was excellent value for money, and I recommend it for anyone wanting to understand how their camera works so that they can improve the quality of their photographs

Sarah Hender Jun 2021

The teacher patiently explained how we could find the functions on our cameras individually and would check how we each went after an exercise. The venues were perfect for the exercises chosen. Very happy. Thank you to Sarah
