Confused or frustrated by the buttons and settings on your camera and want to really take control of your photographic creativity? Or have you just bought a new camera? This is the course for you. Photographer and author Iain Green will guide you through your camera’s various automatic settings - and then show you how to turn off the 'automatic ' mode but still get fantastic photos.

The day will begin with an illustrated session about understanding your camera and the basics of composition, followed by a practical photography session outside looking at the flora and fauna. Due to small course numbers there will be plenty of time for 1-2-1 tuition.

This course is suitable for users of all types of camera and the content will be tailored accordingly and to the needs of course attendees. Through the day Iain will guide you through key camera techniques and photographic skills such as:·
Using shutter speeds to capture action and movement
Understanding apertures and how to control the depth of field in close-up or landscapes
Achieving correct exposure in different lighting or settings
Effective composition, to add impact to your images
