'Seeing the world through the camera lens - capturing the everyday drama of the rhythm of life’ 

This digital photography course takes place over 3 days in 3 months. Each session gradually builds your repertoire of skills, with practice time for the month before the next session. You return to discuss and share your images before further learning. Suitable for those who want to learn to take and edit more inspired photographs, through understanding and considering the importance of contrast, composition, scale, lighting, colour and tone. Basic camera settings will be included, while ensuring that you focus on the process of picture taking and explore the endless possibilities. Starting with; the inspiring surroundings of Ammerdown, focusing on revealing the ‘macro’ Spring world; then ‘broadening our horizons’ viewing the landscape; capturing the endless versatility when observing life through the camera lens; finding further inspiration indoors; constructing studio lighting and taking still life and portraits. We will learn how to edit and manipulate images and print our best results.
