This course will allow you to discover the technical basics of photography.

After an explanation of the structure and general features of an SLR camera, you will learn how to set up and control it by studying the different shooting modes (program, shutter priority, aperture priority, manual). Exposure, an essential element in photography, will be explained in detail, along with the three factors that make it up, known as the exposure triangle (sensor sensitivity, aperture, shutter speed). The consequences of the choice of settings, such as the impact on depth of field for example, will also be discussed.

If we won't be able to go into the details of your camera's menu here, each brand can have its own menus and specifics. we will take a moment to check that the basic important elements (and which are generally the same for all devices) are well tuned. We'll take this opportunity to give you some advice.

At the end of the course, which will alternate theory and practice, you will have covered the essential notions that will allow you to take pictures when leaving the fully automatic mode, and by understanding the implications of your choice of settings. We therefore advise you to bring, if possible, a camera with the standard shooting modes that are generally found on all reflex, hybrid, but also on high-end compact cameras (rated P, S, A, M or Tv, Av, P, M, depending on the brand).

    We wanted, together with my wife, to start the photo together so that we could then progress together. Thanks to this course, we learned good basics, which David took the time to explain to us and to make us put into practice, and this in a great conviviality and pedagogy! Thank you!
