Want to take better pictures with your DSLR camera? in West Malling

Would you like the expert tuition, encouragement and mentoring of an experienced and creative photographer to help you see and take stunning images and feel completely at ease using the settings on your camera?

You may be a complete beginner with a new DSLR digital camera to get to grips with, or someone with a little more photographic experience, but would like to extend your creative skills.

I can help you to:

See potential picture opportunities and understand the basics of strong composition.

Understand the balance between ISO setting, shutter speed and lens aperture to achieve optimum exposure, and to control depth of field (the amount of the image that is sharply in focus).

Learn the camera's settings, such as semi-manual modes (shutter-priority and aperture-priority etc) to get away from 'auto-everything' and be in control of your camera.

Use positioning, perspective, focus control, light levels and lens focal length to create impressive compositions and capture great shots.

Edit your pictures and use Photoshop to crop, enhance and manipulate your images while experimenting with creative effects (black & white, using layers, sharpening and blurring, dodging and burning etc).

What can I offer?

I offer informal one-to-one tuition, or work with small groups, on an hourly basis in your home or in my comfortable garden studio in West Malling (ME19).

I can arrange practical outdoor training sessions (half day/full day) offering the opportunity to explore the subjects that interest you most: landscapes, seascapes and coastal scenes, gardens and plants, natural history, birds of prey, animals, street photography etc.

My approach is friendly, patient, practical and enthusiastic with the emphasis on developing creativity and experimenting - 'giving it a go' to encourage you to develop an eye for a good image, getting to grips with a basic (not too technical) understanding of your camera and its settings to try different combinations and to develop simple post-photography editing skills to turn an average image into a stunning picture.
