Blog & Tutorials
Classroom environments are not for everyone and we all learn at different rates and in different ways. For that reason, we are delighted to be able to offer tailored learning to you and it will cost from as little as €25 p.h. An added advantage with private tuition over classroom environments is that you can cover and learn much more information in 2 hours on a one-to-one basis than you can in a classroom in the same period of time. Slow and steady or a crash course? Do you like technical stuff? Or would you rather be more creative? People pictures or landscapes?
If you have a digital camera, be that a compact, bridge or DSLR, to get the most out of it, you need to learn how to use the manual settings! Take control! We can offer easy-to-digest one-to-one or private tuition to you on the ISO, Aperture & Shutter Speed of your camera. You can consult with us if you are thinking of buying or upgrading your camera or lenses. Photography can be an expensive hobby to get into, so we don’t want to price you out of learning with expensive courses – we want you to be able to afford one-to-one attention so that you can get the best from your digital camera, we want you to enjoy it and we want you to learn! At just €25 p.h. we hope to make our services accessible to as many people as possible. You also have 2 photographers to choose from, with two different teaching styles!
If you already understand the exposure triangle and have been taking photographs for a little while, but would like us to give you a better and more creative, practical thread to follow with basic photography, then we can help. If you’re stuck in a rut and feel that you’re not improving, then give us a chance to shake you out of there and push you a little further!
We can give advice on equipment for those who want to know more about cameras, different lenses, tripods, bags, filters and more. We both have experience with a wide range of brands of camera – Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Pentax, Fuji etc. We both predominantly use Canon at the moment but Andy also uses Fuji, and Milca started out with Nikon – a camera is a camera and we’re impartial to brands, so if you’re getting recommendations coming out of your ears from friends/fellow photographers and can’t make head or tail of it, then we’re happy to chat to you and help you make sense of it all – just remember we can’t make decisions for you!
If you can change your camera settings as easily and naturally as changing gears in a car and get most of your images exposed correctly (not too bright, not too dark and not blurry), then this may be you and good on you for reaching this stage! When you understand and handle your camera well and are seeing improvements in what you were photographing 6 months ago, then it’s time to start adding new variables. You might want to think about taking a one-to-one session on using your flash i.e. basic lighting and Off Camera Flash. Perhaps your photos are fine but you’d like to learn how best to develop the images (on the computer, as you would have once done in a dark room with film)? Or would you like to create stronger, bolder landscape photos? We can set the ball rolling with you.
For those beyond Intermediate Amateurs, such as Advanced Amateurs or even Professionals, we can all always learn something new from each other, whether it’s down to post-production work, lighting, posing or handling bigger jobs. If you’re interested in furthering your skills, learning more about your camera or developing tools such as Photoshop and Adobe Camera RAW or Lightroom, then give us a call or drop us a mail via our contact page and we can see how we can help you.
