This course aims to improve your confidence and skills in photographing people and places. It aims to enable you to take better portraits and improve your travel photography.
Some experience of photography with digital cameras would be beneficial.
You will learn how to take portraits with natural light and flash, including tips for posing models and lighting set ups. This will be taught through practical sessions and discussions about portrait images. You will be required to take your own pictures at home and bring them into class for discussion. You will also learn how to improve your travel photography by looking at composition, exposure, use of different lenses and filters and telling a story through images. This will be taught through discussions on both your own images and those of professional photographers and through a location photography practice.
Informal assessment through group discussion and tutor’s feedback through your course
All Photography and Photoshop classes use MAC computers in the classroom as this is the industry standard and are very effective when dealing with large photographic files. However, if you are normally a PC user, you will be given specific info by the tutor how to manage any differences between the two platforms.
