Beginners Photography Class with Pete Ashton
Learning how to use your camera to make beautiful images can seem daunting. So many buttons and so much confusing jargon. Where to start?
Over the years I’ve developed a technique for breaking it down to simple concepts which anyone can understand, and then building real knowledge about how they all fit together.
My goals, as a teacher, are to:
- Quickly get you taking control of the camera and taking better photos.
- Help you understand why certain settings do certain things.
- Make sure you’re not overwhelmed – I just teach what’s needed to get started.
- Give you a foundation of basic knowledge, which you can build on later at your own pace.
By the end you will be able to shoot in an Advanced mode and control the brightness, focus and motion blur in your photos.
You will also have a grounding in composition – simple tricks to make your photos more dramatic and aesthetically pleasing.
