Here at BSN Photography we offer a few different training days on different subjects to help you get the best of your photography. You can choose from our set plans or create one to suit you. We prefer to work with people on a 1-2-1 basis as find this is most beneficial for the learner however group days can be arranged upon request.
Camera Basics -
By the end of this course you will understand basic camera functions and basic camera care. With this understanding you will be able to go away confident in knowing how to change a setting to get a desired result.
This is a basic course where we introduce you to the DSLR Camera. We will look over the different functions of your camera and explain what each one does, you will also learn how to give your camera some basic care and cleaning. You will do a few experiments to see how changing things such as the aperture affects Depth of Field (how blurry an image is) and the shutter speed affects motion blur. The day will end with a debrief and a feedback session.

Digital Retouching -
We do not offer Digital Retouching as a full course as usually people only need help with a few things, we have found a full day retouching can be very intensive and is better learnt an hour or two at a time. We use Photoshop CS5 and Photomatix Pro. If you need help with a specific image or would like to learn how to do something new we can help you with this for only £25.00 per hour.
