Digital Camera Workshop for beginners Vancouver

Our popular Digital Camera workshop for beginners is scheduled for July 25 in Vancouver and there are a few spots still available!

Do you know almost all digital cameras have some advanced controls to enable you to produce better photos? And yes we cover these controls in our digital camera workshop for beginners! Does it sound odd that a beginner’s workshop would explore advanced controls?

As a matter of fact most of these “advanced settings” are fairly easy to understand and apply, and can make significant improvements in image quality. One example is the Metering Mode and how a quick change from Matrix/Evaluated metering to Centre Weighted or Spot metering can improve the exposure for your subject. You may ask “Where do I find the Metering mode in my camera?” and the answer to this (and more questions) can be found in our Digital Camera Workshop for Beginners!

On the other hand you may say; “I just want to take nice photos of my family and friends.” We will also explore the special features in your camera which help you create better photos of a wide variety of subjects using controls such as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.

Or you may ask: “I want to go into photography very seriously and possibly as a business. Is this class a good starting point for me?” For serious students I suggest our 8 week program  (Digital Camera Bootcamp), but if you cannot make the eight week commitment, then this workshop will give you some good solid basics to understanding your camera and exploring the wonderful world of digital photography.

There are only few spots left for this popular digital photography workshop. This workshop is suitable for all digital cameras with some manual controls and is for all ages and levels in photography. It is a classroom session with some practical exercises. We keep the class size small to allow enough time for interacting with your instructor.

Please let us know if you have any questions.  We hope to see you there!
