DSLR basics

The DSLR basics course is the perfect course to get started into photography. You will learn how to use your camera in manual mode as well as the use of basic accessories, measure the available light, and framing and composing to create stunning photos. It is composed of four lessons of two hours each and a photowalk during which I will shoot with you and guide you in the creative process.

Lesson 1: Camera basics.
Using the camera controls in manual mode, S(Tv), A and P modes, metering light and focusing.
The exposure triangle and how it affects exposure and creativity.
Basic equipment, advice in the most useful accessories and how they can improve your photography.

Lesson 2: Composition basics.
How to get visually appealing photos. We will cover subject placement, point of view and perspective, and the formal elements and space organization.

Lesson 3: Photowalk around the city according to the group’s interests. Themes usually covered are street photography, landscape and portrait.

Lesson 4: Post processing basics.
Now that we already have some photos it’s time to develop them.
Archiving and backups, culling and editing, and basic digital photo development.

Lesson 5: Photo critique, review of your photos and last tips and Q&A session.
