Learn how to take better photographs of your children and family with your Digital SLR camera



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, get some great shots, but others aren’t quite what you hoped and you don’t know why?   Perhaps you end up reaching for your phone camera as its so much easier?  Well why not come along to my beginner’s photography course in Cambridge and learn to take great photographs of your children and family?

Spend a few hours learning the basics of how to work your camera settings to achieve the photograph you want.  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.  You can also book one-to-one tailored training sessions or two-to-one sessions if you’d like to attend with your partner or a friend.


Getting out of ‘Auto’ mode


Learn about ISO, Aperture, shutter speed and White balance.  Take control of your camera to capture the photographs you want to take on any occasion.


Understanding light 


Discover how light (and lack of it) affects your photographs.  Dealing with light indoors and outdoors and how to use light to get the most flattering shots.


Capturing real emotion


Get rid of the fake camera smiles in your family photographs and learn how to capture real moments and genuine emotion when photographing your children.


Louisa is the most amazing family photographer and has taken wonderful photos of my children.  I highly recommend Louisa’s beginner’s course for parents.  As well as being a thoroughly enjoyable day, I learnt a huge amount about using my Digital SLR and have really enjoyed putting 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.  A really worthwhile day – I would highly recommend Louisa’s courses.
