Henry's School of Imaging MultiWeek Courses

Getting started with Photography Training

You've got a DSLR or advanced point and shoot camera. Excellent. Now what? Let us show you the creative and technical skills you need to master your gear. From the first class, you and your fellow students will be rolling up your sleeves and diving into the fundamental camera know-how that matters.

Through a combination of talks and hands-on weekly exercises you'll learn how controlling exposure, depth-of-field and lens choice can enhance the stories your images tell, their composition and the quality of light that brings them to life. Along the way you'll get to know the dials and controls of your new gear as you never have before.

All that in five, two-hour sessions that will get you shooting, sharing pictures online and learning in a fun, team atmosphere.

Before you attend please get yourself familiar with the basics of your gear and please have an active Flickr photo sharing account.

Before taking this class, all I ever used was the auto and scene modes. Using the manual or priority modes was a nightmare because my images always turned too dark. Now I feel I have great knowledge of how my DSLR works and how I could adjust the shutter speed, aperture and ISO to get the best results possible! I really recommend the class to everyone! We got great tips and tricks from the instructor, who is a Professional Photographer. I'm ready to go out and explore the world with my camera!
