Do you also have the feeling you only use a part of the functions of your camera? Do you want to learn more about aperture, shutter speed and ISO? This basic photography course we offer is the perfect course to follow. We created this course for everyone who wants to learn more about his or her camera and the basics of photography. The complete course will be given in English.

In general our groups have 6 to 10 students which means there is enough personal attention for everyone.
Program of the basic photography course
– Morning: We start with focussing, maybe one of the most underestimated parts in photography. You get many tips so you will be able to focus in the right way for still and moving subjects. The next topic is to get the right exposure. Exposure is dependent on aperture, shutter speed and ISO. We will explain everything in an easy way and you will get some assignments so you work with these settings directly.
– Afternoon: After lunch (included in the price) we continue the basic photography course with explanation of some widely used buttons and functions of the camera. We will also give many tips about framing and composition so you know how to make high quality photos. In the end of the afternoon you will get new assignments related to framing and composition.
