Learn how to use your Compact Camera creatively and be in control of its functions and settings.

  • aspect ratio and how it changes composition
  • understand correct exposure
  • ISO sensitivity
  • refined colour balance

  • explore composition to create better photographs
We use a mixture of outdoor and sheltered photography locations in Central London for maximum use of camera functions and settings.

note: compact system camera owners should choose our digital camera Workshop or Creative Seeing. (these cameras have an interchangeable lens)

This workshop is suitable for those who want to understand their compact camera, improve their photography skills, composition and/or preparing for holidays and travel.

We take a short working break for refreshments and group review of work completed. Review and regular assessment is ongoing throughout the workshop to answer questions as they arise.

Spaces are limited to 6, so there is always plenty of time for 1 to 1 tuition during our compact photography workshop.

    I am looking for a course to help me use all the functions on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 Digital Camera. Is the Compact Creative Camera workshop suitable for this camera.

    Hi Graham,

    Great to hear from you. This course is very suitable for your wife and will help her to get the very best from her camera. I am leading both dates and look forward to meeting your wife soon.

    Kind Regards

    I’m looking for a photography course for my wife – to help her get the most out of her new compact camera.

    Is your “Compact Camera Creative Workshop” course suitable for learning how to exploit the capabilities of a Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX90V?

    Also, who will be leading the courses on Saturday 4th and Sunday 19th March?
