You will learn about the most necessary technical stuff in a nice casual way. So don’t be afraid. It's all hands-on and what we discuss you get to set on your camera straight away. Some useful handouts will be there for you to take home and help your further study.
Please bring your digital SLR camera ready with enough battery power and sufficient memory available. Pen and paper to take notes.
