Want to know how to take good photos with your DSLR camera? This photography class is designed to teach you how to use a DSLR camera and get out of automatic mode so you can take stunning images and never look back!

Running for four hours, this course is great for those of you who have a DSLR camera or mirrorless camera but don't know how to get the most out of it. If you have never ventured out of auto mode, then this course will open up a whole new world for you and improve your photography!

Running in small groups of eight or less, you'll be guided through all the settings, what they mean and why you'd use them. Following an explanation and a demonstration, you will have time to try out your new skills focusing on one thing at a time. Your teacher Krystal Seigerman will be right there with you to help you if you need extra help.

Guy was a great teacher, provided a great basic grounding to get us all up to speed and then took us to a number of good locations around Melbourne CBD. He was very knowledgeable and provided lots of advice and guidance as we went along. Would recommend the course to a anyone with a DSLR wanting to get more out of their camera and move off auto!
