Photography course for beginners
Our course for beginners is focusing on a most crucial issue for anybody who is starting to learn photography:
The main idea of the course is to develop the basic skills, necessary to handle a DSLR camera in MANUAL mode. This is a must if you want to use the full potential of your camera. The course consists of three lessons, 2 hours each, the groups are small, maximum 5 persons. The students learn еhree pillars of digital photography : shutter speed, ISO, and aperture. We do not talk much, we practice. As a beginner, you do not necessarily need fully technical understanding of these three terms, you rather need to feel the mutual relationship between them.
On a monthly basis we are offering photography workshops. Usually it’s a photo session in a professional studio under close supervision of a professional. We provide the model, the costumes and all the necessary studio equipment. Every workshops is addressing a particular problem, for instance “Studio portraits and lighting”, “How to shoot wedding couple outdoor”, “Imitation of fly”, “Interaction between two models in the frame”, “Communication with the model during the shooting”, “The pictorial : a photo story”. Students keep all the copyrights on their photos, and can use these materials in their portfolios.
For students who prefer private tutoring we are offering one-to-one lessons. These lessons are scheduled individually for any levels. The main advantage of such a study, is that it enables you to focus on a particular topic you are mostly interested in. It might a be a course about real estate photography or a portfolio review.
