The aim of the course is to provide beginners with enough knowledge and hands on practical guidance to leave automatic mode behind and ultimately capture better images.  The minimum requirement for the course is a DSLR camera, all makes and models welcome.

The course (approx. 3-4 hours, longer if needed) includes the following:Understanding the information displayed in your viewfinder


  • P (programme) mode
  • A (aperture) mode, also known as Av mode 
  • S (shutter speed) mode, also known as Tv mode 
  • M (manual) mode
  • Depth of field
  • Long exposure techniques
  • ISO settings


After a couple of hours on getting to know your camera and equipment, the remainder of the time will be spent on location giving you the opportunity to try new techniques and camera settings.

As this is a one to one course we don't have to stick rigidly to the agenda, if there is something in particular you need help with, I will be more than happy to assist you with this.


The course will take place in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, I can travel to you if necessary.
