Introduction and purpose

We are photographing almost everything that is within the range of the camera we are holding in our hands. If it is a digital SLR, we want our pictures to be unique and better. Unfortunately, we don’t always succeed. The course on using a digital SLR camera can change that. Our goal is to teach each user the following: how to use an DSLR, what modes and functions to choose so that the pictures we take are not accidental. The aim for us is to see exactly what we came up with, that we want to photograph, in the picture we take. We don’t require experience in the field of photography.

We don’t require the skills to use a camera. We don’t require prior reading of the manual (although it’s always worth a try). The issues discussed are enough to take photos in most situations an amateur photographer can encounter.


Important information

The course covers following models: D5, D850, Df, D500, D750, D610, D7500, D5600, D3400 and older models from the same range. The program of our course includes several exercises that require more space than a conference room. Therefore you should be prepared to spend some time outside, if the weather permits.

This course is for you!

  • If you didn’t manage to go through the manual.
  • If you are not satisfied with your pictures.
  • If you think that they might be better but don’t know how to achieve it.
  • If you want to use the “manual” camera settings.
  • If you don’t want to shoot with the “green program” anymore.
  • If you want to take good photos not accidentally, but all the time.
  • If you want to control what the camera is doing.
  • If you want to shoot in PSAM modes.
  • If you want to know the true capabilities of your camera.
