As you know, I got my lovely new bridge camera back in January, and I have been spending quite some time out and about playing with it, but have mainly been taking my pictures using the nice, safe ‘automatic’ mode on the camera.
Just recently though I went on a dSLR photography course, that Boo bought me as a gift. I had a fantastic time, and now I am in control!
No more automatic shooting for me, I understand all about f stops, shutter speeds, and when and where to give priority to one over the other in the cameras settings. I learnt lots of hints, tips and tricks for taking pretty portraits, and lovely landscapes.
I know how best to set up my camera for different situations, along with which lenses and other pieces of kit I should be buying for my collection.
Oh, and now I understand all about depth of field too….. See?
I got a gold star for this one! 😀
If you want to go on a course I really recommend you use Photography Made Simple. Phil & Rachel Hibberd who run them are great teachers, and so enthusiastic about their art you can’t help but get carried away.
Whether you’re an absolute beginner, looking for specialist training like wedding photography, or even want some one on one training, then these guys really are the guys for you!
