The aim of this one day photography course in Stirling is to demistify the workings of your camera and to take complete creative control of your camera for the first time. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of two people.

Whether you’ve just been given a new digital camera, or you’ve been stuck in automatic mode for years, our tutor will cut through all the jargon and complicated technicalities to help you take full creative control of your camera.

The first hour will be spent going over some basic theory helped by some coffee/tea and cake (on us). The next 4 hours will be spent out-and-about in Stirling, putting into practice what you’ve learned. The instructor will patiently take you through the workings of your camera, step-by-step, all the way to mastering Manual mode. We will take a twenty minute comfort/snack break at 1.30 pm.

At the end of this course you will receive a free pdf guide covering all aspects taught on the course. To purchase this course please Click Here, or book directly with David on 07400 705 357.
