BEGINNER’S PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE

Revolutionise your photography in just half a day!

 

 

Are you a parent that owns an expensive digital camera but doesn’t know how to use it?  Do you turn it to ‘auto’ mode, and are frustaded that your photographs aren’t what you hoped from such a great camera? Perhaps you end up reaching for your phone as its so much easier?  Well why not come along to my beginner’s photography course near Cambridge and learn to take fabulous photos every time?

In this half day course, I’ll teach you both technical and creative aspects of photography.  Revolutionise your photography skills by spending a few hours learning the basics of how to work your camera settings.  Gain the skills you need to take great shots on holidays, birthdays, weekend walks in the countryside and just playing around at home. Learn about what makes a great photograph, composition and framing, and understanding light and how it affects your pictures.

I offer a group beginner’s photography course for parents in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.  You can also book a one-to-one tailored training session if you prefer a more personalised experience.

“Louisa’s course was brilliant and I feel so much more confient about using my camera.  She gave so many practical tips and I can’t wait to put it all into practise!”

I attended a beginner’s photography course run by Louisa.  She really is a pro, sharing her knowledge really effectively to enable us all to leave the day confident we can compose and consider all elements to make a good photograph.   I would highly recommend Louisa’s courses.
