Learning something new can be daunting. But if it's all done at your pace, and you can ask lots of questions, you'll soon make progress. And I'm very patient
With my one-to-one tuition for beginners, you just learn what's important; there are lots of things you don't need to know - like menu settings and technical stuff - so we just concentrate taking better photos.
We begin by discussing what sort of photography you wish to do and the various options; then we can go through your camera's menu and set everything up accordingly. Next, I show you the best routine for taking photos - framing-up the scene and correctly setting focus - and we take some shots.
At this point, we'll be ready to transfer image files to your computer and, depending on your preferences, do some light editing - cropping, correcting, resizing and sharpening - before sharing on the internet, printing, or whatever you wish to do with your photos.
We can either use free editing software, or the excellent Adobe Lightroom.
We can also cover composition, lens magnification and field of view, and the differences between human vision and what the camera "sees". I can also give some constructive photo critique if you wish, along with answering any questions you may have - it's all very flexible
