I have been using my Z6 extensively for 12 months. Sometimes I have trouble shooting in high contrast situations - was it me or the camera ? Ricci was excellent - spent the first 15 minutes listening to me, looking at images and asking lots of questions. We then spent a very enjoyable 90 mins running through about 10 different areas to improve my understanding, offering some tips on light/composition, and explaining some excellent camera features which would help - and they really do. Thankyou!
D850 Part 2 was such an invaluable course to learn more about the advance settings and we had a chance to put our new skills to practice whilst walking in the local streets of London with time lapse and slow motion. I learnt how to customize menus and go through a whole heap of functions that I wouldn't have known about, if it wasn't for the course. Ricci was great at his teaching and giving fantastic tips which I still use!
Criss-crossing London to photograph some iconic landmarks in low light was a fascinating session. The classroom teaching at the start got me ready to capture some great images. Ricci was very knowledgable and professional and gave me the confidence to try all sorts of shots. A great evening. Thanks so much.
This getting started with portrait photography course is a well-rounded and balanced day to get to grips with various camera settings and basic lighting set-ups for portrait photography. Neil, our tutor, was extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic about the subject; happy to assist with any questions as we went along. There was a good insight into some of the key points of portrait photography through a presentation in the morning followed by ample opportunities to photograph the model later on.
Ricci led a really great evening, he set out some clear guidelines to achieve creative shots and what we could expect when out in the streets. The group had plenty of time at the various locations to experiment with different settings. Ricci was always on hand to lend his knowledge and expertise. I was pleased with some of my shots and I planning to hit the streets again to improve my technique.
My third session with Ricci and again I found him a great tutor - clear, supportive, fun, helpful and keen to make sure everyone got what they needed from the evening. A brief intro at the school with most of the time spent out and about in great spots around London getting light trails, lovely views on the Thames etc while learning about long exposures. Excellent! Thanks Ricci
One to one is an excellent service. I now understand the capabilities of my camera far better. After addressing the issues I’d raised in next to no time, Neil went on to review the menus with me, answering questions I didn’t know to ask! I wish I had done it sooner!!
The course was excellent and Ricci pitched it at just the right level. The day was informative, interesting and very helpful. Ricci was able to show us tricks and tips , guiding the group through the Z range in detail before we went outside to put the lessons into practice. Some of the tips have already been used on a recent ‘shoot’.
I can't say enough good about Neil and the time I spent at the Nikon School today. What a wealth of knowledge he has. In addition to his knowledge, he is an excellent instructor. He asked, and then listened, to find out what I wanted to do with "my" photography. He gave me a clear path to accomplish my goals. If I lived in London, I would take a class at the Nikon School at least once a month. Can't wait to come back to England and take another class. Thanks so much!
The course caters for complete beginners who have just purchased a Digital Camera to photographers who are new to the Z6/Z7 mirrrorless system.
Ricci was amazing, he made us feel comfortable.
In my case, he even reviewed my photos and commented what I could do better, in terms of using a faster shutter speed to minimize motion blur.
