Dale Fort is a popular venue for developing digital photographers with all types of cameras – this course is suitable for both compact and DSLR cameras. It provides the perfect opportunity to photograph the superb land and seascapes of Pembrokeshire in autumn. We will look at the controls of cameras to achieve the best from light metering, apertures and shutters. As much time as possible will be spent outdoors although we will look at enhancing images on the computer to maximise their potential. Although some knowledge is useful the course is open to anyone keen to improve on their digital photography. All participants will be provided with a computer and software, and there will be a range of equipment to try.
