Photography Courses - dradd's photography

Photography training

Starting off with digital photography can be a bit daunting, especially if you want to have some control over what your camera is doing and not rely on it being in 'Auto' mode all the time.

But the back of a modern camera is a scary place - lots of letters and numbers. What do they all mean, and how do you make use of them?

I have put together a short course to take you through what I believe is are the most important settings on your camera, and give you an insight as to how to get the most from them to enable you to get better photographs.

One to one tuition

Besides the 'Introduction to DSLR photography' course I mention below, I am also happy to tailor something specific to you and your needs.

As I specialise in wildlife and pet photography, something can be tailored around fieldcraft or photographing animals in order to get the best results.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions.
