About the Course

Still stuck in the 'Auto' mode on your camera? Want to take better pictures? This course is for beginners who own a Digital Camera and want to learn more of its functions. Learn how to operate your camera in manual mode, make correct exposures in a range of situations and understand aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus and more. This course will give you creative control over your camera thereby encouraging you to take photographs with intention, rather than letting the camera do all the work. This intensive, creative course will increase your confidence and you will soon see your skills - and your photographs - improving.

By the end of the course you will be able to
Expose images correctly
Choose the right settings for particular scenes
Good use of lens focal length
Good use the aperture and shutter speed controls
Produce interesting images

Teaching is both in groups and on an individual, one-to-one basis, with technical advice and support depending on your needs. The tutor will give demonstrations, presentations and lead group discussions around technical and creative subjects.

What you need to know before you enrol
During the lessons we will be going out to take photographs around the college and some lessons may be outside on location.
