Get off auto mode and start capturing incredible photos with this hands-on beginner photography course in Sydney!

If you're thinking of taking up photography, either as an amateur or a professional, getting out of automatic mode is a must.

During this class, you'll gain a perfect understanding of the basic settings of your camera, as well as the jargon of digital photography. You'll also be able to manually manage certain aspects of the shooting process.

During this course you'll learn how to:

  • Use the right image format, between JPEG and RAW
  • Evaluate file sizes and format your memory card
  • Set a white balance
  • Correct an exhibition
  • Set the ISOs
  • Read the histogram of a photo
  • Use the P mode of shooting

At the end of the workshop, we'll offer you a complete debriefing where you can share your first images taken during your training.

This collective review, carried out by the teaching photographer, will allow each student to have a good understanding but also to draw inspiration from the achievements of the other students.
