What you'll do

How to get from auto mode to manual mode.
You have acquired a camera but it's no pleasure using it? Your pictures aren't satisfying?

In this course, my goal is to share the basic knowledge of photography with you, so that you can enjoy using your material and be able to take pictures that please you. I will teach you how to optimise tricky shooting circumstances, by using the semi-auto and the manual modes. There are lots of ways to get the pictures exactly as you want them.
My intention is to share information thanks to my experience and my sensitivity, and to support you personally through the course.
This workshop will be enriched with practical exercises in order to successfully integrate basic settings, and we will have a lot of fun.

Duration: 1h30
Beginner level

In addition, on request, I can also suggest you to go in the surroundings, between the lake and the mountains, to practice directly on the ground with your device. This will allow you to ask all your questions, and to discover magnificent landscapes.

A pleasant experience with Lauren. As a complete beginner of photography, I was not sure what to expect from the lesson and it turned out to be an incredible time to understand how the camera works and spend some time to take photos at the beautiful park in Lake Annecy. Throughout the lesson, she has been really friendly and sincere. She was also patient and tried her best to explain to me in a good pace. For anyone who is visiting Annecy, I would highly recommend her class.

Superbe expérience avec Lauren, elle est à l’écoute et a su me transmettre son savoir faire et la passion qu’elle a pour la photographie. J’ai enfin pu comprendre comment fonctionne mon appareil en mode manuel et elle m’a donné des conseils pour que je puisse améliorer mes prises de vue. C’était super et c’est avec plaisir que je prendrai d’autres cours pour approfondir. Merci encore!
