1 Day Creative Photography Course (Classroom)
This course is aimed at those who wish to quickly expand their basic knowledge of photography


Based around 6 great photography disciplines, this 1 Day Creative Digital Photography Course is aimed at those who really want to push the limits of their photography, and do so very quickly. At the end of the course you can be sure that your photography will be at a completely different level!

The beauty of this course is that you do not need a wide range of skills to get great results, you can be a complete beginner or someone with more photography experience.

Four Different Photography Disciplines
Six completely separate photography topics are the bedrock of this course. These range from Landscape Photography to Street Photography to Macro Photography. Classroom based tutorials form the core of this exciting course. Each tutorial will give you the key information needed to help you capture great shots on each of the field trips.

Who is this course suited for?
Students taking this course will have been trying out Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority on their camera. While shots are not always turning successfully, they feel they are now ready for some serious instruction as to what has been going right (and why) anout d what has been going wrong (and why).

Recommended Equipment
A Digital Camera with Aperture Priority (Av on Canons, A on other cameras). Suitable cameras would include Digital SLRs or Bridge cameras, see Choosing a Camera here. Wide Angle Lens (18-55mm kit lenses are fine). Tripod.

At the end of this course all partipicants will have a very good understanding of how Program, Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority Modes function. They will also have developed their creative side and will have a clearer idea of the kinds of images they want to shoot.

Full Colour, illustrated pdf notes
Full colour, illustrated pdf notes (download link sent after of purchase) which are carefully worded and appropriately illustrated are an integral part of our courses. Because lectures tend to have an effect which lasts only a short while, particularly if no notes are give out, we believe our pdfs are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting (notes supplied via direct download as soon as you book the course). As part of that philosophy you will recieve detailed notes covering the whole course that will both aid learning while on the course and in the weeks and months afterwards.

Limited spaces - book now to avoid disappointment!
