I came across this course after a lot of research on photography courses. Taking the taster session helped me understand straight from the start and after completing the full course I've gone from knowing nothing and my Camara and taking pictures to having a much clearer idea and understanding of what things are and how to use them

I can't thank Sarah enough for this beginners course. I love photography and have always been interested in learning to using my camera properly (that I've had for 5 years not knowing how to use) I found it daunting at first with all the different aspects to photography but Sarah has presented in a way that even I can understand! Thoroughly enjoyed every step! Thank you! Great course and lovely lady!

I loved this course. It's jargon free, easy to understand and most importantly fun! It's been nice using my camera and doing the exercises and seeing how the different settings change the feel and look of the image. Before doing this course I NEVER took my camera out of Auto. I didn't understand what to do with it. Now since completing the course, I feel like I have a better connection with my camera and actually prefer manual mode. I have much more control and am excited to get out and use my camera more (as lockdown eases up and allows me to). I love how the course is presented with text and video's. I have also made personal notes that I now carry with me as well as the downloadable posters. Thank you very much for this course and I will be letting everybody know about it as I have enjoyed a lot :D

Thoroughly enjoyed the course, it reminded me of when I first started taking pictures with my Practica, then I moved onto Olympus, before entering the Digital age with Minolta, finally ending up with a couple of Sony DSLRs. The recent acquisition of an A7ii has rekindled my interest and finding your course was a bonus. It helped me to remember that I did know this stuff (exposure triangle etc) and to get away from the P option it was permanently glued to. As you rightly point out, its a confidence thing and when, due to other time constraints work, family etc and you’re unable to find the time for photography the camera is only taken out rarely and is invariably left in P mode. Many thanks for taking the time to produce this excellent course and I would recommend it to all novices and oldies like me who’ve forgotten why we used to love photography so much.

Sarah has explained the camera basics to me in clear language with very practical examples - I just wasn't getting all the settings before the course and Sarah made it so much easier to get to grips with my DSLR camera. Sarah showed me Aperture Priority mode and how to use compose a shot with auto focus point selection which were just revelations! I'm practicing with manual mode and am so excited to see how my photography further improves! Thank you Sarah!
