Price: € 129 including e-book The 7 most important camera settings

The individual online photo lesson is standard 120 minutes. You can also book the workshop in 2 blocks of one hour or extend it with extra hours.

This photo lesson is really something for you:

  • if you have traded in a camera for a newer model
  • when switching from a crop camera to full frame (or vice versa)
  • when switching from an SLR to a mirrorless camera (or vice versa)
  • if you switch from a camera with a fixed lens to a device with interchangeable lenses

For this workshop we assume that you master the most important settings of your camera: aperture, shutter speed, iso, exposure and white balance. You shoot on semi-automatic (aperture priority) and/or manually. If you haven't mastered this yet, book our camera settings workshop for beginners.

You can book a single lesson of 90 minutes, or an online photo course of 8 lessons in Lightroom or Photoshop.

What do you need for an online photo lesson?

For remote lessons you will need:

  • a good internet connection
  • PC or laptop with a camera, speaker and microphone

We also strive for quality for online photo lessons. We tested a number of online ways of working and screen sharing. Zoom clearly came out on top here. You see each other's screen in high quality and without delay. This is important for the smooth progress of a lesson. We will send you an invitation to join the Zoom meeting before the class starts. You don't need to have an account. The online session is protected with a unique login and password.
