Get to know your Camera – The Basics

Do you have a decent camera but don’t really know how to use it? Are you confused by all the buttons and numbers? Do you play safe and stay in auto?

If so, this course is for you. This course will demystify your camera and show you what all those dials and buttons mean and how to use them to get the photographs you want. It will also teach you tips and tricks of the trade.

The course will be both technical and practical with plenty of opportunity to put your learning into practice. Apart from class time, there will be an optional  photo walk in the streets of El Puerto.
