If you’re looking for Photography Courses Gloucestershire, but without the gobbledegook, I’m your man!
I can help you improve your photos.
Hello! I’m Shane – Gloucester photographer, trainer, friendly chap.
Do you love taking pictures, but wish your images had a bit more ‘wow’ factor?
Does the photo on your screen look like the picture you had in your head?
Even budget cameras can do amazing things these days, but a camera hasn’t been invented that knows what you’re thinking. Not yet, anyway…
It’s easy to leave your camera on Auto and assume technology will magically give you the perfect shot. But as you’ve no doubt noticed, it rarely does!
Wouldn’t you rather be in control?
One of the greatest pleasures in photography is knowing the conscious decisions you make can turn an average shot into a great one.
But more often than not, the Auto setting won’t even come close to the look you want.
Exposure is the first thing to master.
In Auto mode, if a background is very dark, the camera will try to compensate and render your subject washed-out, overexposed and generally horrible. If it’s your loved one, they may never forgive you…
However, if you have a very bright background, your subject may become a virtual silhouette as the camera tries to adjust for all that brightness (okay, that’s the best kind of photo of me, but some people like to be seen).
You can correct this by understanding a few basic settings that give you control over your exposure. In fact, you can even let the camera do some of the work and then adjust to taste. It’s surprisingly easy, and once you see the results you’ll never look back!
Learn to ‘see’ a good shot.
Combine your new-found knowledge of exposure with an understanding of how to focus correctly, and how to spot and use ‘good light’ to add impact, and your photography will take a giant leap forward.
I can take the guesswork out of it for you.
As most would agree, it’s no fun at all studying a camera manual; in fact, it can be hideously dull – and worse than that, confusing. You may persevere simply because it isn’t nice to look at all the buttons and have no clue what they do. Sadly, this often leaves you feeling like it’s all too much to learn. I’ve been there.
So let’s put you in control of your camera and your pictures. I can explain the stuff that really matters so you don’t have to pore over endless instructions when you just want to get shooting.
If you don’t feel in full control when you put that camera up to your eye, try one of my
