Photography for Beginners (No camera required) + Q&A

Photography is an art, capturing special moments in a frozen frame. It can be very intimidating to get started, thinking you don't have enough to begin or you aren't sure if it is right for you. No matter what equipment you have or don't have, if you can capture an image, you can capture the magic of any moment. There are transferrable skills between smartphones to major DSLR or mirrorless cameras. I am here to guide you through your journey into photography.

I have designed this course to guide you through the daunting technical side, but also provide the tools and ideas to give you creative freedom and capture images in the artistic way you have in mind. I can show you how to use a camera you have, and teach you theoretical concepts on how to evoke a certain feeling and how to capture it, and even the basics of image editing and composition. I am also open to any questions you have throughout the course.

Extra information

No camera is necessary, you can use your smartphone cameras. I can also show you how to use DSLR and mirrorless cameras and how to operate it to capture the photos you want.
