5- week beginner's Photography with Ruth Armstrong



This 5-week course will give an introduction to photography, providing the beginner photographer with the basic skills and confidence needed to start creating.

We will look at ISO, Shutter speed, and Aperture, and learn how these three things work together. We will also study the use of light, composition and framing.

Each week we will begin the class by discussing great photographers and artists, past and present, to discover how they use their craft. We will also look into what photography means to us as individuals.

Every class will cover a different aspect of photography, and small photography projects will be set to give participants the chance to practice their new skills. Time will also be assigned during every session for one to one tutorials, giving everyone a chance to discuss work individually or seek further advice or information as required.

To get the most from these classes you should have access to a camera that allows you to control the settings manually.
We will mostly look at the use of available light, so no further equipment is necessary.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
