Friendly one-to-one tuition courses at your home or office.
Master your camera and shooting routines for beautiful photos!
This tuition course is for people who have a digital SLR, compact system camera (CSC), SLT, super-zoom / bridge or advanced compact and wish to take more control of their camera by coming out of auto.
You can fully master your camera's settings and take better photos. We cover aperture, shutter speed, ISO, depth of field, where to set focus, lens magnification, field of view, RAW or JPEG, post processing, and more.

Costs are the same if you wish to share tuition with a partner, friend or relative; and for more tuition, you can save money with a 3x3 Photography Tuition Course.
I'll explain which settings and routines will be best for the types of photography you do, and for your camera specifically. You can't learn this easily with a shared group course; one-to-one learning is much more efficient!
We begin by discussing which genres of photography you wish to practice and the various options. Some of the choices you make here, such as whether to shoot RAW or JPEG (or both), will influence menu settings, shooting mode choices and routines. We can then go through your camera's menu and shooting modes and set everything up accordingly.
Next, I guide you through the best shooting routines - checking exposure, framing-up the scene and correctly setting focus - and we put it all into practice.
You can ask as many questions as you like, anytime. I can explain about different lenses, their uses and requirements; filters; tripods and other equipment - it's all very flexible
We can also cover composition and photo editing / post processing, and I can give some constructive photo critique if you wish.
