This course is designed for EITHER those who have already attended our Beginners 10 week course or the Beginners 1 day course, or for those who already have a good basic knowledge as described below. Although there will be some revision of these techniques, participants must already have a working knowledge of:

  • how and why to select different apertures
  • how and why to select different shutter speeds
  • how to use manual exposure and manual focus
  • how and why to use ISO, White Balance and Exposure Compensation controls.

This course will concentrate on:

  • developing further confidence in controlling the camera to achieve specific results
  • improving composition
  • improving understanding and control of exposure.

During the course participants will be asked to take pictures on particular themes or using particular techniques and to share these for group discussion and review as an additional aid to learning.

To register for this course you should have your own digital camera which allows you to manually control exposure, aperture, shutter speed, ISO (sensitivity) and focus. Your camera should also have a zoom lens or a several lenses of different focal lengths.
