Recommended and suitable for: Beginners with no or little knowledge of photography who want to learn photography and how to use their DLSR cameras effectively in the fastest and shortest time.
Totally Hands-on: Instead of getting you to memorize scary terms like aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, the idea is to bring you out to the field and show you what they really mean. Most people just want to take good photos—and nothing beats going out there to shoot. Learn by doing.
Personal Attention: Theory is kept to a minimum and the focus is on the student trying out each photographic concept immediately to see if he or she is comfortable and if not get immediate assistance from the instructor.
