Learning Photography

One of the services that XOIND Studios offers are classes on photography. These classes have been created because of a number of questions we received from people in general and on the higher end, other photographers. Our classes start with simple, laid back, and easy to pick up skills to more significant in depth professional training.

The most basic class is getting the most out of your point and shoot. This geared for those people who have no knowledge in photography and just want to improve their photography. The next level is leaning your DSLR camera. Basically the same class with the point and shoot plus some other concepts that are beneficial to DSLR owners. Finally, there is a one-on-one training on professional photography training.

Of course, there are blog posts that we have posted here. Here are some that you may find helpful.
