Camera Craft- Beginner Photography Course

You probably have invested close to two thousand dollars or more on a camera because you enjoyed shooting with your mobile phone camera for awhile and you felt that with a more sophisticated camera you could do better. Or maybe someone complimented your photography and recommended you should use a ‘real’ camera.

Then the salesperson who sold you the camera or the trainer (usually just a technician) from the complimentary course that came with your camera purchase might have taught you semi-auto or full auto mode is the way to go. Sure, it’s simple and fuss-free, but you are underutilizing what you have paid for and you are missing out a whole lot of fun in photography. If you are using those modes there is basically no different from shooting with your mobile phone camera. And you might have realized the result is worst than before, simply because you are not operating it the right way, the manual way. What you need is a Beginner Photography Course.

“You pay to learn to control your camera the right way, which is in Fully Manual Mode, not Semi-Auto. Simply because you want to learn the fully right way, not semi right.”

This is a short basic beginner photography course designed to empower you with the ability to operate your digital camera with confidence and efficiently. With a blend of technical theory and hands-on practice, you will soon unlock your camera’s potential. This course is designed for both beginners and for those who have lost touch with their camera when the last dinosaur ruled the world. It is one of the chapters from the Essential Photography Course.

Our training program embraces a three-part format which includes theory, application and review/critique.

The sessions are a mixture of both theory and practice for the optimal learning experience.
