Whether beginner, intermediate or advanced there's a bokeh photographic training course for you!

Photography has been made much more complicated than it needs to be through, amongst other things, an excess use of jargon, fixation on (mostly spurious) expensive equipment and, quite ironically, an over reliance on the automatic functions of modern cameras i.e. the ‘indispensable’ features that manufacturers try and convince us we need through huge advertising expenditure. Paradoxically, advances in camera technology have had the opposite effect to that intended. People are not necessarily taking better photographs; images are often worse or at best mediocre despite the significant amount of money we spend on kit. What is worse, the ‘dumbing-down’ of photography means that most photographers can’t figure out what to do when the automatic mode lets them down; which, as you may have experienced, is almost guaranteed when encountering a once in a lifetime photographic opportunity!

Help is at hand. You may be an absolute beginner with a camera ‘stuck’ in automatic mode who presses a button and simply hopes for the best. Alternatively, you might be an intermediate-level photographer looking to take your photography skills to the next level. bokeh photographic Photography Training Courses offer a completely different experience to other camera tuition.

Unlike other courses I actively teach key photographic skills via practical field-based training that systematically works through the key decisions that need to be made in various photographic scenarios. By working step-by-step through the decision-making process (covering not just the ‘how’ but the ‘why’ and ‘what are the pros & cons’) participants gain a far greater understanding than with theory-based training alone and so are adequately prepared for almost any photographic eventuality.

All bokeh photographic training courses are bespoke (NB: individual training needs are identified in a pre-training telephone call) and are either one-to-one or small group (maximum six) to ensure that each participant has optimal instruction and supervision.

 

  • Introduction to Photography

An intensive one-day training course designed for beginners struggling to get to grips with their camera in addition to intermediate-level photographers wishing to refresh their skills. Participants gain the skills and confidence to take full control of their camera through using full manual and semi-automatic modes. Suitable for all digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR), bridge and compact cameras.

 

  • RAW Essentials

A one-day training course designed for those new to shooting in RAW format as well as photographers wishing to refresh their post-production skills. Participants learn about the benefits of shooting in RAW and are guided through the steps of RAW conversion to JPEG, TIFF etc. The course also highlights strategies to improve post-production workflow including ‘plug-ins’ and batch processing. Suitable for all versions of Camera RAW, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.

 

  • Flash Essentials

A one-day training course designed for those new to shooting with external flash as well as photographers wishing to refresh their strobe photography skills. Participants learn about the fundamental differences between ambient light and flash and the use of flash as a key (main) and fill (secondary) light. The course also covers how on-camera and off-camera flash can be used to dramatically alter the look and feel of images. Suitable for all external ‘hotshoe’ flashgun units (e.g. Speedlites) as well as studio flash and strobes. Please note that the course is not intended for in-built ‘pop-up’ flash.

 

†Usually run in Cambridge although alternative venues have included the North Norfolk Coast, London and various National Trust properties.
