Happy New Year
I hope you had a wonderful holiday period and if you were hoping for new camera equipment it came your way. You may now want to get the most out of your photography and a course is what you need. Our new term has already started but we have courses scheduled through the next three months and I am sure there will be something of interest to you
If you have a camera but only ever feel comfortable using it on the fully automatic setting then you are wasting your potential and could be doing so much better, understanding how to use your camera is the cornerstone of improving your photography, we have courses for those with digital SLR cameras and for those of you with compact cameras.
Most of our courses are evening classes starting at 6.30pm. Full details of our courses can be found on our website here
Here are some dates
Understanding Your Digital SLR: £80 start dates: 11.1.12; 30.1.12; 7.3.12; 3.3.12 (this is the Saturday morning course for those who cannot make evenings)
Understanding Your Digital Compact Camera – £80 starts: 27.2.12
We also have a 1 Day Version of the DSLR course, there are three dates left this term with places
One Day Understanding Your DSLR – £90 19.2.12; 25.3.12; 29.4.12
If you have completed one of these course with us or have learned by your own efforts you will understand how valuable the skills you have are and now may want to go further and improve your photography in a more subject driven way. Most people start this by taking our very popular Composition Course, it is subtitled Seeing Pictures because we aim to help you understand about photography in a general way and how you can apply that vision and skill to your own images.
Composition In Photography – Seeing Pictures – £80 starts 2.2.12
The other courses we run are aimed at those with specific subject area interests and these courses really help photographers to learn how to take much better pictures in their chosen subject areas
Portrait Photography: – £80 starts: 1.3.12
Black and White Digital Photography – £80 starts 6.3.12
The Intermediate Photography course we run is a wonderful way to realise that having photography as a hobby is not just about your pictures but also about how what you do with a camera is influenced by the great masters of photography and how you can learn from them. This course is a definite must for anyone who has a good understanding of their camera but wants photography to mean something to them, to make pictures that have impact and beauty. In some ways this is one of our most successful courses because the advancement we see in students images is significant.
Intermediate Photography – starts: 24.1.12 six sessions £97
Photoshop is skill that many photographers want to master because they want to have control over how their pictures will look, they want the final image to be more than just what the camera creates. We teach this by instruction and practical engagement with the software, every class has periods where the students watch how to do something and then have time to practice in class. We recommend the Photoshop Elements program rather than the full version as much because it is only about £60 at the moment on Amazon rather than £550 for the full version.
Introduction to Photoshop and Photoshop Elements – £97 starts 22.2.12 6 sessions
