Are you addicted to the automatic settings on your camera? Confused by composition? Perplexed by perspective?

Well, luckily for you we have a quick reference guide to photography for amateurs from professional photographer Dade Freeman.

Dade is a portrait photographer based in Brighton who loves nothing more than creating interesting compositions from people; whether they be up and coming bands, the next top models or people out and about in town. When he's not shooting, he's often teaching and lending a hand to young photographers who are making their way in the world. 

DSLR Photography Workshop

Photography for Amateurs

Dade gave his presentation to a group of 24 bloggers looking to learn more about how to best use their digital single-lens reflex cameras, in Brighton on Sunday 8th June. Our bloggers enjoyed a lovely day out along the Brighton coast with the opportunity to take plenty of photos and put the skills and tips they had learned to good use.

The guide gives tips on how to choose the right mode for your shot, shutter speed, aperture, composition and some more general tips on how to become a more creative and daring photographer.

Our photography workshop is part of a series of events we are running to help bloggers get to grips with the technology they use when they're creating great content for their website. Our #LightsCameraCurrys event followed on from #Currysinthekitchen in March when we took 20 bloggers down to the Underground Cookery School in central London to help learn more about a range of kitchen appliances.
