I just want to take better photos!

This first session is for all those people that want to know how to best use all the features on their camera. If you just got a new one for Christmas this will be ideal.

In this session we will do an introduction to cover elements depending on what you need based on the following.

- Understand how to use your camera
- How to see and find a good image
- The best ways to capture it

This 2-3 hour Introductory session will be mainly be the basics on creating the image. We can do a starter on getting to know your camera and also later look at an in depth session on understanding your camera each and every element of digital photography.

For the intro session it is just £10. As well as giving you some great ideas and knowledge to get you going straight away it will also be a taster of the benefits for other sessions and workshops. (Discounts offered for future sessions too). 

The future workshops will include learning some of the basics to some day trips to great locations for amazing photos. Landscape, portraiture, travel... just about anything and everything you want to cover. We will also soon be doing some studio photography with a model for anyone interested.

There are some great venues lined up for this in the Portsmouth area. It depends on the size of the group as to which we use. Please register your interest so I can go ahead and confirm one.

      Hi Daniel,
      The first workshop I ran was a success with some great feedback too.
      I posted a topic for discussion about what workshop people would like next but received no response. I'd be more than happy to do another evening workshop for the meetup group. I like doing 1:1 tuition at great locations and it would be perfect for the meetup group if anyone is interested.

    Hi Adam, this sounds good. Tips on getting more from my camera and days out to test new found knowledge. :-)

    The participants interact well, learnt new tips to take away and try new ideas and got their specific questions answered. More importantly, everyone wants to do more of it so I will be organising more. Maybe fortnightly or monthly with a special day outing at least once a month.
    Your comments on these ideas too please! :)

    Apologies for delayed replies to your questions, it has been rather a busy week with a recent storm photo gaining over 50,000 views and requests from the media from all over! The storm chaos is passing now and I'm looking forward to meeting you all next week.

    Hi everyone and thank you for signing up for this course.
    The location may sound a little unusual but it is actually very comfortable. See our leather seated training room here http://www.theterraceportsmouth.co.uk/gallery

    I am very excited to have you along. Included in the intro session fee I'll be providing tea/coffee and biscuits to make it not just an informative and useful evening but relaxing and enjoyable too.

    It seems the majority of people signing up are interested in Landscape and we can focus towards that with the main topics being:
    Composition
    Intro to your camera settings

    In subsequent courses we will delve deeper into those camera settings and soon you will be knowing how to use your camera in manual mode without even having to think about it.

    I'll also make plenty of time available to help with individual questions with your cameras while we have a cuppa and get to know each other.

      That's a shame but no worries, there will be others and not always on a Wednesday. Look forward to seeing you soon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
