Couses are aimed at the beginner and keen amateur photographers with the desire to "Get out of Auto" and take control of the camera. we will cover basic "Modes" featured within your camera. Then progress on to full "Manual" settings. This is when you can really get creative by having the full potential of your cameras ability at your finger tips. For students who already have a basic understanding and would like to take their ability's to the next level I can tailor make causes to suit your needs.
