Introduction to DSLR Cameras

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 3.18.14 PM.png

You love taking your camera out when you are exploring, yet every image you make seems to be lacking compared to what you see with your eye. The primary root of this problem is shooting in Auto mode. Meaning the camera is doing all the thinking for you.
Theres only one problem A camera doesnt have a real brain. It cant think or compensate for issues that confuse a camera, and it isnt able to compose an image by itself.
You have already invested money, time, and energy to make better images but you are not satisfied with the results. Why is that? There are so many functions in your camera, and often reading the manual doesnt get the ideas to gel in our minds. We need to understand the fundamentals of camera usage and photography as a whole. We need to visualize, experiment and gain hands on experience with the functions.
So join me for this popular workshop to learn more about getting more from your camera, the settings and how to apply the information you gain.

Course Outline:
2-3 hrs (class size depending) theory on how your camera works and composition rules
1 hr Meal Break (full Menu ordering available from La Bruschetta Bistro *Not included in course cost*) 
2-3 hours (again class size depending) of hands on practical knowledge of what we learned.
What You'll Need to Bring:

  • A Camera that you can set to Manual. Doesn't have to be a big expensive DSLR, but as long as you can change the settings that will work (Mandatory)
  • A willingness to learn
  • A great Attitude 
  • A Big Smile


Ticket are available by emailing me at info@darranchaissonphotography.ca

I accept all major Credit Cards, E-Transfer, Cash, and Cheque.
