Did you get a good camera and not sure how to use it? Had one kicking around for some time but are befuddled by the dials and menus? Or perhaps you take photos but leave the camera in auto mode?
Do you with you could take photos like you see online? This Bronze Beginners Course is for you.
Learning and improving our photography is a great way for anyone of any age to keep physically and mentally active. It also gets us outdoors, and we meet new people with a similar interest. Many of my clients are retired and lots get together after their courses to continue shooting together. Others are young people who have discovered the art of photography and some those who, like me, work from home.
This is a flexible beginners course which will take you from the basics of exposure to more advanced techniques. It is suitable for anyone who wants to discover the camera and composition skills needed to take better photographs. Learning is hands on and achieved on photo shoots.
Camera controls and buttons
Exposure and different metering methods
Aperture, shutter and ISO values
Composition and the rule of thirds and positioning yourself for the best shot
Understanding the histogram
Depth of field and hyperfocal distance.
Choice of lenses
Introduction to digital development.
Because the course is flexible, we can also consider other topics too.
This beginners’ course is scheduled to run over 7 weeks starting Wednesday 11th March 10 am. Each session is at least an hour-and-a-half long and usually based in and around Amble, Warkworth and Druridge Bay.
You are booking this as a course to join in with a few others and I don’t take more than six people on my courses. If you prefer, you can also book training exclusively for you, as one-to-one training, or with one or more friends, please see my available Courses or contact me for details.
This course runs over Easter and, depending upon your availability and that of the participants, it may take a break then. (If everyone is happy to continue during the Easter holidays, then I shall continue.)
Over the years I’ve discovered a friendly, laid-back approach to running courses that apply unique methods I developed. I believe in delivering high-quality, progressive training. These courses don’t include hours of health and safety lessons, researching the job market or writing CVs as you’ll find in the NVQs. My aim is passing on my knowledge so you can learn how to take great photographs.
I always get a complete mix of people on my courses. Sometimes people have challenges with their mobility and I always adapt my workshops to make the courses accessible to everyone.
If these times don’t suit you I’ll be organising more and I’ll try to fit one around your availability. Evening classes start after the clocks change. If you have any questions, please contact me and I’ll try to schedule a course that fits around your availability. This course is also available as one-to-one training.
I really look forward to meeting you.
