Join a friendly group with similar interests
Just want to take better pictures.
In digital photography we believe that taking the picture and downloading it is only half the story, so we will teach you the basic editing techniques that will allow you to transform your images from average to great and prepare them for uploading to Facebook or Instagram and for printing.
The course focusses on taking pictures rather than technology and you will get to work on a personal project and make a photo book during the course as well as showing your work in a group show to be held in January (see the pictures from our Summer Show)
Subjects that will be covered include:
Your camera - what the buttons do and why you need them
Downloading and editing you images
Composing amazing images
Different lenses and when to use them
Preparing images to use with Instagram and social media
Use of studio equipment & lighting - the basics
Taking studio portraits - the basics
Closeup and macro photography - basic skills
Making photo books
