What you say about How To Use Your Digital Camera Workshop Beginners Course

“I loved the day-Lou was fantastic at getting the whole group (despite lots of different cameras) to move through the projects which were brilliantly designed to leave us all at the end of the photography course understanding how to use our cameras once off Auto mode!! Thank you” Nicole Robertson

“Great day and just what I needed to start me on the way to taking better photographs.” James Smith

“Lou does not only have great technical knowledge, she is also a great tutor! The photography course was well structured to make participants explore the first steps beyond “auto” mode. The individual locations / projects were well selected to help getting to the points. Many thanks Lou – you really got us hooked!” Rolf & Manuela Deusinger

  5. Nikki

    Hi I am interested in attending this course. I want to start off with a basic camera. What do you suggest?

    1. Lou Smith

      Hi Nikki,

      Great to hear from you. We recommend an entry level DSLR like a Nikon D3300 or Canon 1300D. They are around £300. If you do not want a DSLR then there are many advanced compacts and bridge cameras with powerful zoom functions. The Canon powershot SX series starts from around £170. Best to decide your budget and if you want a camera with interchangeable lenses or if you prefer something smaller and lighter with zoom facility built in to the lens.

      When you get your new camera do book and learn how to use your camera in our excellent Beginner Photography Course.

      We hope this information helps.

      Kind Regards
      Lou Smith

      Happy New Year Rob!

      Great to hear from you.

      We recommend that you start with our Beginners Photography Course. This course will get you off to a great start.

      Our teaching is geared towards the camera you own and by the end of the course you will have a good understanding of the photography fundamentals you need to know to improve your photography. We will show you how to use your camera too.

      We will also show your way around you camera and explain what the buttons and dials do. Your bridge camera is fine for this course.

      Please take a look at the course outline from where you can book and secure your place.

    Dear sirs,

    I am looking to take a friend on a photography course in London. I have previously done a course where I was explained the 3 aspects of a SLR and how to frame pictures. Is this something you offer?
