ABOUT THIS COURSE

Our photography evening class in Surrey will guide you through the basic way in which a digital camera works and go through each of its controls. We will concentrate on how to freeze movement by proper control of the shutter speed, and then guide you through the effect the aperture has on our images and will also look at exposure compensation, metering and ISO settings.

Time will be spent discussing the methods used for downloading our images to a computer and some of the basic electronic enhancements we can make to our images prior to printing using image editing software.

Portrait photography, Landscape Photography and Low Light Photography will also be covered during the classes with practical tasks set for students to complete each week.
