I have had my DSLR camera for a year and haven’t been able to use it to its full potential – this course will keep me out off the auto setting for good! Excellent job distilling very technical info into easy to understand / remember components.
Michelle Boe, Sony Alpha A200
I signed up for the half day beginners course cause I needed to get an intro into how photography works. Creative hands on activities were very useful and the course met my expectations and more. Now feel confident enough to turn off the auto setting! Would definitely recommend!
