One day Beginners' workshop ~ Learn essential knowledge and practical skills to improve your photography with Danielle Ledbury.

This is a one day beginner's course that gives you the opportunity to learn in a fun practical way, it is a mixture of classroom based tutorials, practical demonstrations and hands on practice with your own camera. Over the day you will build an understanding of your camera's functions and confidence in how to use them to create great images. We like to keep the group size small to ensure that you have lots of help and opportunity for 1-2-1 support.

On arrival you can sit down with a tea/coffee and we will go through your cameras and discuss features. Then in the morning session will talk through each of the various settings and aspects of photography in small bite sized pieces and practical exercises for you to test out with your own camera. Then after lunch (provided) we will head out and about (weather permitted) and develop your photography skills further discussing composition techniques and learning to see creatively. You will be able to practice and receive some 1-2-1 coaching. There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions and don’t worry if it all feels like a lot on the day, you will also receive hand out notes for you to take home. Please note this course is focused on beginners and really getting to grips with the techniques rather than a photo tour.  On the course we will cover:  

  • Camera functions: Aperture f-stop, Shutter Speed, ISO, priority modes
  • Image quality (ISO and file formats)
  • Exposure triangle and compensation
  • White balance
  • Creative compositional techniques
  • Camera equipment and gear choices
  • Learning to see creatively
