Formally Digital Boot Camp

We help You Make Great Photographs

Most of our camera based-courses are broken into two parts; the basic and intermediate.

In "The basics" will get you familiar with the tools and functions of your camera, while the intermediate take you through more conceptual learning. However, the basics is required prior to the intermediate (OR at least highly recommended). We won't force someone to do the basics first, however, if you haven't done a camera course before, or can't explain what the AF points are and how to select them, what ISO and White Balance are and how to select them on your camera, then the Basics is the place to start!

The "Intermediate" courses are designed for someone who has an understanding of the scene modes, can explain what the AF points are and how to select them, can describe what ISO is and how to select it, explain white balance and knows how to select it, and can explain a focus and recompose technique, but needs more information as relates to acheiving creative goals with your camera (blurring backgrounds, depth of field, freezing motion, blurring motion), and solving unexpected problems.

I also provide training with "Photoshop / Photoshop Elements", "Adobe Lightroom", "and Studio and Flash Lighting". Our computer software training courses are BYOC (bring your own computer).

I am focused on exposing Newfoundlanders to the world of Digital SLR photography; pardon the punn. We are more than willing to travel the island to put off our courses for arts and crafts groups, photo clubs, galleries, pretty much any organization.

Our workshops are presented via high tech KeyNote software, LCD TV for illustration of the camera's menu systems, and we come with plenty of patience and willingness to help!
