THE PIXEL FARMER presents PHOTO COACHING Learn to Love your Digital SLR What Is It All About? Let me coach you and your DSLR into taking better pictures. A DSLR (digital single lens reflex camera) is a powerful image making tool, and in my opinion most users have very little grasp of how to get the best out of their fairly expensive cameras. What I do in the coaching/tuition sessions is to get you to understand the basics, so that you can unleash both the capabilities of your camera and the depth of your creativity yourself. I have offered group courses in the past but found that most people in the classes had either different photographic interests (some liked landscape work others wanted to focus on portraiture) as well as wildly different amounts of knowledge and experience. By booking for personal Photo Coaching you can be sure that you will learn what you want to learn at a pace you are comfortable with. Basic Theory that is Covered – The Shutter Speed Creative Utilization of Shutter Speed Shutter Speed and Flash Synchronisation Aperture Basics Creative Utilization of Aperture Depth of Field and Hyper focal Distance Balancing Shutter Speed and Aperture ISO, Metering and Exposure Camera Modes Pinhole Photography Portraiture Landscape Photography Flash Photography (The Basics) What you will need – A digital single lens reflex camera or DSLR. If you are not sure whether your camera is a DSLR give me a call and I will let you know if it is suitable. (I have one spare DSLR that I offer on loan should you wish to do a session before purchasing your camera) Any extra lenses you have would definitely help and a tripod would also be useful, but these are optional. Dates and costs and locations: I am available for Coaching whenever I am not out of town on assignment. The venue for the sessions depends on the kind of photography you would like to learn about, so outdoors on the beach for sunset if you are into landscapes or indoors at my home or yours should you wish to focus on portraiture with lights. Let me know what you want to do with your photography and when you are available and I will make it happen. I charge R500 per session; this does not include travel or catering but does include a theory info- pack. About Alfred Lor – I am a pro-photographer. I shoot for various magazines and companies.
