This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Do you own an amazing DSLR and it’s still on Auto? Let me teach you how to use your DSLR camera to its full potential. We will work with aperture and exposure going beyond auto or program mode.

Based on weekly theory classes and fun assignments, you will learn how to capture better images, improve week by week, and end up with great shots that you are happy to share with others as you become more confident with your camera. This course is suited to introductory/intermediate DSLR users.

You will learn:

  • How to set up an ideal situation for photography and how to act with the kid in front of the camera
  • Working with light, dynamic lines and composition
  • Freeze the motion

Nelly is a professional photographer, having worked extensively with children and people for family portraits as well as commercial and editorial clients.

What to bring

  • Camera (preferably DSLR)
  • Fully charged battery
