This lively and informative course is suitable for both beginners and those who have a basic understanding of photography, who wish to have greater creative control over their equipment and at the same time develop their appreciation of the medium.
The course begins with a discussion on basic camera operation, looking at the various settings and functions found on digital SLRs and mirrorless cameras. Then by taking part in a series of informal workshops, you will develop an awareness of the essential techniques and picture making skills applicable to photography.
There will also be an assignment set at the end of each session to give you an opportunity to explore different themes (such as Portraits, Architecture, or Street Photography), and receive valuable feedback from your tutor. Finally, the course concludes with an informal group critique of everyone's work that gives you a chance to think about how you might progress.
