Learn the basics of photography principles and techniques in express time!
Taking pictures but struggling to understand why you’re not getting what you want? Your owner’s manual reads like a foreign textbook?
Learn photographic terminology which will give meaning to terms such as
- shutter speed
- white balance
- depth of field
- focal length
- jpeg and raw files, resolution
- and more...
With definitions understood, the course moves around each of these technical terms and employs practical exercises to explore the successful use of them. At the end of 4 weeks (or 4 sessions) you will know where to find and how to use your camera’s settings for creative effect. And you will have a collection of your own short photography projects to prove it!
Who is this course for?
Beginners to Beginners Plus:
You may be a complete beginner in photography, or need a refresher or want to up-skill to learn to be more effective with a higher "hit rate" in your image creation.
You might be in a business which needs images, but you can't quite get the focus or clarity or exposure right. You might be in a marketing role and/or in charge of images and/or social media but need help working out what makes a strong image, or why one photo works and the other doesn't. Knowledge of both camera and photography will give you the edge when creating, selecting or requesting imagery.
You may want to add our Photoshop course - so you know how to prepare and resize images for upload (Facebook, Pintrest, Twitter, etc), create banner ads for web advertising, set up Photoshop templates for others to rework monthly or weekly, or prepare online or print materials.
Ideally a digital camera with the following exposure modes: M, Tv/S, Av/A, P. Camera phones also make great learning tools for photography and there are lots of skills we can give you for a device you will always have with you!
Photographer, journalist, writer (who needs to add images to their stories), marketing role, social media, image content manager, archivist, artist, historian, tour guide, travel industry and many more!
