I'm Beth, a real-life photographer and author. In leading over 4000 enthusiast photographers, I've noticed the same technical dramas that beginner photographers experience when they start out with their first manual camera.
They are scared that they might break their camera if they press the wrong buttons, they struggle with photography fundamentals and how to bring them together correctly on their camera in manual mode.
To solve these challenges I've been teaching the left-brained, buttons-pressing Camera Confidence Workshop face to face for five years in a supportive, conversational and hands-on format. I wondered, what do I do, every time I shoot, to get my camera ready?
And so that's what I teach - the easy-to-follow system for setting up your manual camera called the Seven Step Shoot Flow.
What they say
'The lesson was very worthwhile and, indeed, I had some good 'aha' moments! From now I will be shooting 'M' as much as possible (and doing this with better understanding)!' Johan
'I had a few of the basics but it was great to bring them all together. I think practice will be the key.' Ange
'I did a workshop with Beth after struggling with reading/practicing the concepts associated with Manual Mode. Beth's personal style and methods of getting these fundamental concepts through to beginners broke through the fog that accumulated in my brain and enabled me to go on to become a fully fledged Manual Moder!! Would recommend this to anyone and thank you!' Shiraz
