Frequently Asked Questions
Can I do this course if I have a smartphone and not camera?
If you have a high-end smart phone which allows you to control the settings through a third party app, then you will be able to apply these principles to your photography. There will be a few sections that won't apply to you, like choosing a lens, but most of the information will be very useful.
Should I upgrade my camera before I do this course?
This course is all about understanding and practising the basic principles of photography which apply from film cameras, to ten year old DSLR cameras, to the latest, most expensive mirrorless models. As long as you can shoot on manual, you can do this course, and then, if you really love it and want to upgrade at a later stage, all the principles will be in place. If you do want to upgrade anything, consider a 50mm lens for the course.
Will this course be available for enrolment indefinitely?
No, the course is only open for enrolment for one month at the moment. At the end of June, I will be closing enrolment. I however will launch the course again at the end of the year.
How long will I have access to this course for?
You'll have access for the lifetime of the course, for as long as I continue to run Mastering Manual Photography, and guaranteed access for AT LEAST 6 months after you enroll.
