Digital Photography Course for Beginners is a 2 day course with lots of good theory and practice topics, exercises, practical examples, impromptu demonstrations, outdoor shooting to try different effects and the opportunity to discuss and ask questions after each topic.

The course is suited for those who wish to understand and use digital cameras in a very effective manner. Both digital SLR (single lens reflex cameras with interchangeable lenses) and compact cameras are covered but with emphasis on Digital SLR.

The course is for beginners, for those willing to take a refresher course in the basics of digital photography and digital cameras or for those going on holiday who want better results.

If you don't own a DSLR camera yet but still want to attend the course you can use one of our spare semi-professional DSLRs for the duration of the course. Please let us know if you wish to use one of our cameras.

This course was entirely designed with a good logical structure covering all key aspects in digital photography and a good balance between theoretical explanations, demonstrations and practical examples.
