It’s time to venture off ‘auto’

Are you confused by your camera or frustrated that you can’t get the photographs you want? Baffled by your camera’s endless menus, and permanently stuck on ‘auto’? Book this one-day Photo Iconic course and you’ll wave goodbye to the auto setting and ‘hello’ to creative photography.

Making things simple…

We’ll de-mystify your camera, show you which are the important controls you’ll need to master to improve your photography, and which of the many and confusing menu functions you can ignore. Our objective is to help you use whatever camera you have and allow both your confidence and creativity to blossom.

..then getting creative!

You’ll be surprised how simple photography is and how quickly your images will improve as we help you to understand how to control focus, depth of field and exposure, then bring these together with the basic elements of composition to improve your images.  Once you understand your camera controls, all those images which didn’t look as you expected them to will be a thing of the past. Suddenly your camera becomes a simple, fun, creative tool! This sets you free to be more creative and allows you to concentrate on the art and craft of making better pictures.
