Learn to take better images with your DSLR!

(It’s OK to admit it!) Understanding it’s various functions and what your camera and the lenses you have are capable of doing will give you the confidence to go practice and take great pictures

Combining theory and practical elements during the day you will having plenty of ‘ahhhhh ha!’ moments and lots of fun! It may even spark you to thinking that you might want to become a professional photographer!

“Just had a wonderful day with Sara Moseley at the Great Little Picture Company on her course!
Although photography is a hobby , to which I am very enthusiastic, her clearly defined and level headed (KISS) approach enables the photographer (new and experienced), to gain something from the day.
Course content is sufficient to keep you included and is paced accordingly with generous practical time using two models.
Overall quality experience. Thoroughly recommend her courses and look forward to the next opportunity.”

“First and foremost thank you Sara for a friendly informative course delivered in an easy to understand manner.
But what did I learn? First of all and whilst using a “lesser” camera, I found out more about my camera and its’ functions than any handbook can inform you about.
Whilst I found out about deficiencies that my current camera presents me with, (I recently changed down to a powershot) I discovered how I can raise my photographs with it to a much higher standard.
Had I completed this course earlier I would have kept my EOS.
Great course!”
