This course is for photographers who want to learn more about the controls of their camera and what it means to be in control to take the picture how you want to take it, not as the camera wants to take it. This is the start to your journey into creative photography and will help you to develop your skills further in order to get the best out of your camera and equipment.
The course is a follow on from Discover your Photography and is suitable for students who have already mastered the fundamentals of digital photography. Please speak to the course Tutor before enrolling in order to ensure you have the required skills.
This course aims to put you firmly in the driver’s seat in understanding and using your camera and how to apply this knowledge to your day to day photography.
Developing skills learnt on the Discover Photography course, we will look at compositional techniques to add strength to your image. The use of depth of field (DoF) and shutter speed to add creativity to your images. Along with a host of other techniques tailored to the course attendees.
PLEASE NOTE – Field trips will be organised to allow you to practice the skills learnt. These will involve two half day classes on Saturday 20th January 2018 and Saturday 24th February 2018. However, these dates are subject to weather conditions.
