Photography for Beginners Introduction to Photography
So you’ve got a nice camera and you’re wondering how to use it? Then this is the course for you, where you will be guided gently through the important technical fundamentals of your camera: your camera is a tool, and in order to use it effectively, you need to know how it works.
Unlike many photography tutorials, this course is less about taking photographs, and more about the camera: how it works, and how to use it. A simple introduction to the elements of exposure and how to control it will be given, which will give you the knowledge you need to take the photographs YOU want to take, whatever they might be.
You will spend some time enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in Kiplin hall while learning the necessary knowledge to use your camera effectively, and then we will head out into the grounds to put it into practice, where you will be given individual advice and feedback to help you take the photographs you want to take.
It doesn’t matter what camera you have, though a camera with the ability to change at least some settings manually is preferable. All you need to bring is a camera: no other equipment is required. However, please bring warm clothing as it will be cold outside!
£45 per person. Maximum 12.
Thursday 27 April, 10am - 3pm at Kiplin Hall
