    What you'll learn

    ExposureWorks' classes are created for a unique 1-on-1 teaching experience and so this class is available anywhere in London as György, your tutor, will travel to you for the session so that you can have his full attention. If none of the dates work for you, please suggest a day and a time (using the link underneath the dates). It couldn't be simpler, right?

    In this class

    Take 1 aaaaaaand action! If you want to get started with filming on your DSLR then this is the class for you. No matter what level you're at, we'll get you understanding the fundamentals of filmmaking and producing high-quality, cinematic footage.

    You'll be taught to take control of your camera to:

    • understand the basic parameters of your exposure ASS (yeah, we know!): Aperture, Shutter speed and Sensitivity
    • get that exposure right - understanding the practice of metering and using the live histogram
    • learn how to select a lens for your video (sometimes, the old ways really are the best)

    Your teacher, György, will be there every step of the way, helping you with any filming queries you've got - he's the man!

    Now you can

    • Get to grips with the camera features, no more embrassing "what's this?" or "How do I?"
    • Know the essential equipment you need to get started (tripods, filters and lenses) - all the gear and some idea!
    • Capture the perfect moments in beautiful film, with your everyday DSLR camera


    It's not 100% necessary, but we highly recommend bringing along:

    • a tripod, any tripod if you have access to one
    • any manual, fixed focal-length lens

    Every course includes lots of hands-on practice, some of it outdoors. So make sure you dress to impress the weather gods not the crowds; even in mildly cold temperatures caps, gloves and water-resistant shoes might be needed. Besides, as long as your shots are beautiful who cares what you look like, right?

    Did you know?

    In 1895, the Lumière brothers shot "The Arrival of a Train". It didn't even last a minute and featured, as the name suggests, nothing more than a train pulling into the station. "Oh, well that's dull" I hear you say - but as simple, insignificant and mundane as it may appear today, this was innovation of the highest order at the time, and spectacular to watch!
