Learn Photography with Anne Darling
One-to-One Tuition in France

LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY in the historic city of Bordeaux, capital of the Aquitaine region in south-west France.

Are you visiting France in the near future? Would you like to learn photography on a one-day course designed to improve and build on your existing skills? Whether you have a compact camera or a digital SLR, I will show you how to improve your photographs and take shots that you can be proud of. And you will have fun doing it!

The tuition is one-to-one and tailored to your needs. To do this, you send me five photographs by email attachment to assess your needs. Then we choose which topics and locations to visit to make photographs under my guidance. This can include landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, street shots, etc, depending on your needs and wishes and assessment of your previous pictures.

Tuition is centred in and around Bordeaux and the famous Gironde estuary but arrangements can be made for you to learn photography on a one-day course anywhere in the Poitou-Charentes region. Just drop me an email and let me know your tour plans and I will suggest alternatives.

Some of the topics which we may cover on a one-to-one photography session include:

  • How to improve your composition
  • Dealing with moving subjects
  • Photographing people
  • Photographing landscapes and cityscapes
  • Using depth-of-field successfully
  • Photoshop and other editing software tips
  • The use of exposure and shutter speed
  • Learn to critique your own work
  • Light and shadow - how they impact your photos

"A photographer who makes a picture from a splendid moment, an accidental pose of someone or a beautiful scenery, is the finder of a treasure" - Robert Doisneau
