You already have a DSLR, mirrorless or advanced point and shoot camera. You have a good eye, you have some idea of how to compose your images and you are seeing good pictures but they just aren’t coming out the way you wanted or the way you saw them. You use the AUTO setting of your camera and you really find the camera manual frustrating and boring to read.

The Solution:

Learn the basics that really matter! I know that it can be an overwhelming process to flip through the camera’s manual, so I have created a comprehensive course to break it down to the basics, a course that is simple and understandable.

It is easy to understand, yet full of information. We will have demonstrations, before and after photos and presentations to help you learn! We will have a practice session, so we could try everything we learned. I will give personal advice to every participant and help you with information about specific photography subjects you might be interested in!

More info about my experience: I am a professional photographer working, for the past 12 years, with clients all over the world. I have extensive knowledge about photography and have done numerous workshops as well as a photography class in the “International School of Brussels”.

What are we going to learn in this beginner photography workshop in Brussels? This will be a 1/2 learning and 1/2 day practicing on location.

Some of the topics we will cover:

  • The fundamental elements of great photographs
  • How to use your Digital camera, so you can get the most of it
  • Aperture (f-stop), shutter speed, ISO and how they all work together
  • Aperture priority, shutter priority and manual mode (and which one to actually use)
  • The basics of framing, composition and DOF (depth of field)
  • White Balance, Exposure, Highlights and Histogram, Exposure compensation
