Courses by Yours Truly

I know I have been talking about this for ages and I have had a steady stream of emails following up, so I am now formally announcing that, if there is enough interest, I will be offering one day courses at an introductory price of 89 inc.VAT . Subjects for each course, at our offices in Hemel Hempstead, including a light lunch and refreshments, are:
  • Get the most out of your Olympus DSLR
  • Get the most out of your Olympus Pen compact system camera
  • Discover the brilliance of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Other courses can be built if there is enough interest.

We have a fully kitted out classroom with big screens and, when required, networked workstations

These courses are all aimed at people who have got to a certain basic level of expertise but wish to step up to the next level.

I'm looking at dates from mid-end November and early December.

I'll publish more detailed information about the course contents shortly.

To make this economic, we will require at least ten attendees per course.

Ian

Thanks Richard.

The plan would be cover all the controls, explaining each one individually, plus menus and other on-screen aids, including the Super Control Panel, set up options, programming buttons and using custom settings.

We would also cover the use of the various autofocus and exposure modes.

The surrounding area is quite photogenic (Grand Union Canal) so we could also go for a short shooting tour and then return to evaluate results.

I will have a large range of E-System lenses on hand for everyone to try.

Of course I would be on hand to answer any questions, and we can also talk about software, like Lightroom and Olympus Viewer 2 if required.

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

Hi Ian

Interested in the DSLR and Lightroom courses.

It would be fascinating to discover the real possibilities buried in the menu system and Lightroom I'm just starting to get some idea of but that's a huge subject in it's own right.

cheers

Hec

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

I will be interested in the DSLR and especially the Lightroom courses, subject to dates as it is a way to travel. My Wife may be interested too, if non-members will be allowed!

Regards, Andy

Re;Courses by Yours Truly.

I'm interested in the PEN course, let me know when things are a bit more organised re-dates etc.
I've now got some 'freetime' as I don't have a job at present !

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

A bit of a thread revival but I too would be interested in learning more about my EM1 and lightroom if you are still planning these courses Ian.

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

I'm still interested in PEN courses & Lightroom, plus any up and coming test & try days for the OM-D EM10 and Stylus 1 cameras.

Let me know if there will be any happening in the future.

Many thanks.
