So you’ve moved off Auto, and have a basic grasp of the exposure triangle. You can now use the semi-automated modes – Program, Av and Tv – and can adapt your exposure settings according to the light level. Next you want to take full control. Where to now?

This intermediate level course picks up where you left off with Get off Auto, so that you can create exactly what you want in-camera, deploy some of the more advanced features and improve your success rate significantly.

During this fully practical, hands-on day, you learn how to take greater control over your exposure – learning about AE Lock, AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) and metering modes – to ensure you’re giving yourself every opportunity to capture the shot. The last of the Creative Zone modes – Manual – will also be taught, and you’ll explore when this mode is best used.

You'll learn about capturing moving subjects, and how to set up your camera's autofocus system to get consistently sharper shots of subjects great and small, fast and slow.

Moving to other override controls, your tutor will explain white balance and Picture Styles – when to move off the automated settings for either correction or creative purposes to improve the colour, contrast and sharpness of your images.

To make the most of this course, you should have already attended Get Off Auto or EOS for Beginners as you’ll need a firm grasp of the exposure triangle and how to interpret light levels before attending.

This is the Wildlife version of the Mastering course.

We also run this course in cities, where the skill level is the same, but the emphasis is shifted to concentrate more on interpreting your surroundings and dealing with challenging conditions. You can find out more here about Mastering your EOS: City
