Ready…Steady…Shoot!

Stuck in AUTO mode?

Let me help…

Ready Steady Shoot

Wouldn’t you just love to have everything you need to know about shooting in manual explained in simple terms by a real photographer?

Are you STUCK in auto mode on your big camera? Frustrated by the not very user friendly user manual? Wouldn’t you just love to have everything you need to know about shooting in manual explained in simple terms by a real photographer?

If you are enthusiastic about photography and the proud owner of a big camera 

BUT you

  • Couldn’t understand the instruction manual because it’s so long winded, technical and ughhhh….overwhelming
  • Are finding it frustrating that the pictures you’re taking aren’t as good as you imagined, or KNOW they could be
  • Have realised that mastering manual is way more complicated than you’d ever imagined
  • Gently placed that lovely camera you invested in back in a drawer months ago
  • End up taking all your photos on your phone because it’s just easier

Imagine…

being able to confidently turn that dial away from the auto setting FOREVER and feel so comfortable using the manual setting it becomes second nature, like driving a car. You’ll get to the point it feels so intuitive you won’t even realise you’re doing it.

BUT like driving a car, there’s a lot of practical and theoretical stuff to learn first, which can sometimes feel hard, and you’ll have to practice lots. And just like driving a car, it’s all totally worth it! It’s just that in this instance the endgame is sharper images, no more over exposed pics, understanding how to use light and composition, heck you’ll even start to have loads of FUN trying! There’ll be no more shying away from bright sunshine and dark shadows – just the sheer joy of learning how to use them!

In just six sections

 

I’ll explain the following in straightforward and real terms:

Section one Understanding your camera – what do all these buttons do? Understanding focus

Section two Shooting in manual – we’ll cover the exposure triangle, how to control light, exposure and colour temperature

Section three Light

Section four Composition

Section five Getting creative with different types of photography

Section six From camera to computer – introduction to editing your pics and guidance on printing

I can’t promise there won’t be ANY nerdy camera jargon, but what I do promise is that I’ll break it down into bite sized chunks that you can understand. I’m not particularly technical myself, but I know what I need to know to take a damn good photo

Are you ready for me to share all I know?

I recently completed Ready Steady Shoot which made me rediscover my love for proper photography and gave me all the tools and skills I needed to not only shoot in manual confidently and in diferent situations to make beautiful pictures. Despite being a few hundreds of pounds down after upgrading to a current a new fuji kit and lenses (had to be done!), I am really grateful I took this course! Still loads to learn but I am leaps ahead compared to where I would be without Hannah!

Gemma Serra-Feliu

Hannah’s photography course is the perfect guide to getting the most out of your camera at home. The course content is interesting and I loved having access to a Facebook group and weekly Q&A. I’m excited to get my camera off Auto for good!

Not sure?

I’m there to support you as the course progresses and I’m totally happy to answer any questions as we go. I may be a pro now, but trust me , I have been there – confused by the settings and frustrated by the picture quality. If there’s a mistake to have been made – I have probably made it and learned from it!

Hi, I’m Hannah.

professional portrait photographer and proud Mum

Hi I’m Hannah, professional portrait photographer and proud Mum of two kids and a black Labrador. I’ve taken photos of everything and everyone my whole life and in April 2017 after the birth of my second child had a lightbulb moment that I could turn my passion into a business. The only problem was…I didn’t own, or know how to use a big camera! I went ahead and bought one, and quickly realised that I’d need more than a user manual to understand how to use it. I invested in a camera course and learned lots through trial, error and talking to other photographers. 6 months later, I took my first pai family booking and 6 months after that I shot my first wedding. In January 2020 I resigned from my day job and became a full time photographer – and yes, this turned out to be right in the middle of a global pandemic! I’ve never regretted my decision and I’m really passionate about  my photography and helping others get their big camera off auto. It simply is not true that the better the camera, the better the picture. It’s the photographer who makes the picture. Always.

Is this really for me?

  • Does the user manual really confuse you?
  • Do you wish you could just have the exact bits that you need to know about shooting in manual explained to you in simple terms?
  • Do you wish you had a professional photographer on hand to guide you through it?
  • Would you rather learn from someone who has felt all that pain, and made the mistakes, so that you don’t have to?

Yes? Then this is the course for you!

This course is NOT about:

  • How to run a professional photography business
  • Attract clients
  • Editing in lots of detail

(although courses on all 3 things will follow at some point!)

With spring in the air and summer around the corner, wouldn’t you just love yo get the big camera out, dust it off, and be confidently using it on manual by the summer? 

I’m limiting intake numbers to make sure I can give you all the very best support and guidance.

FAQs

I don’t even know what shooting in manual means?

You will do, by the end of this course and you’ll be able to use it!

My camera is really old – does it matter?

Not at all! As long as it has a manual setting, you’ll learn lots from this course

I’m really busy, what if I can’t keep up?

You’ll be able to access the course in your own time and you’ll keep the content after the 6 weeks has finished.

I’m not on Facebook.

No problem, I’ll email you everything you need to know, and I’m contactable via email too.

I’m just not very technically minded.

NEITHER AM I….and that’s why I think you’ll love this course!

I’m worried it’s going to be full of jargon!

I can’t promise there won’t be ANY, but I’ll keep what there is as simple as I can!
