WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Understanding the importance of light
We will discuss taking photos both indoors and outside. I will explain the different types of light, it's qualities and help you learn how to read the light to take amazing shots.
Leaving 'Auto' mode behind
This is the main aim of the course. Getting you to take the first step towards better images by moving out of Automatic mode. We will exploring what the different settings do and I will be encouraging you to try the different camera modes to see the difference it makes to your work. You will learn about aperture, shutter speed & ISO and the impact that they have on the exposure of your images.
Composition
As with any creative activity, there are guidelines that help you get the most from your work. It terms of photography, this simply means where you can place certain elements within your image to make it look more balanced and appealing to the viewer. By explaining the rule of thirds, I will help you take your work to the next level and give you lots of helpful tips to make your images stand out from everyone else's holiday snaps.
Creativity
We will look at ways of how you can take more creative shots that express your own personality and represent your style.
Equipment
I'll offer lots of guidance around what types of shots you can achieve with your current camera and share helpful information on what you might want to consider purchasing for a particular type of photography that you are drawn to. Some people tell me they love the 'blurred background' effect, some people want to freeze action shots in sport or wildlife. Others love taking shots at night time of the moon & stars. I can tell you how to achieve these effects and what kit that you will need to do.
