This course will introduce you to the artistic medium of photography. You will study a range of photographic techniques, materials and processes, developing your skills and answering those questions you have always had about photography. The course is designed for anyone who wishes to learn more about their cameras and how to take your photography to the next level.
The first course (Introduction to photography skills) will focus on the basic elements of photography, understanding your camera, using alternative applications and using simple but effective tricks to get the best shots possible. The second course will focus on taking the basics from the first course and applying them to other areas, developing your skills further and using more of the complex equipment to achieve the photographs you have always wanted.
The courses will be focused around theme-based workshops each week, in which we will look at a particular area of photography. This will entail taught practical demonstrations and one to one tutoring sessions.
At the end of the course, you will join the other students in a review session, looking at the work you have created on the course and in your own time. These photos will be reviewed and the strongest selected to be used as your final piece.
You can come in to the college and book your place at our part time enrolment desk.
There are no entry requirements for these courses.
You are required to bring a camera to the workshop sessions, whether that be a Digital SLR or a Compact camera. If you have a Learning Difference or Disability please let us know when you apply. You will be offered support in your interview. If you need help completing your application we can help with this too.
This course is designed to improve your understanding of photography and using your photographic equipment to the fullest.
