On our photography course which is suitable if you are a beginner or need a refresher, you will learn how to use the main controls of your camera, and how to create the pictures you want to take. It is suitable if you have a DSLR, compact system camera, micro four thirds, bridge, or any other advanced compact camera with settings for aperture and shutter speed.
