Transform your photography in four easy lessons!
They say a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. But when it comes to improving your photography, a little knowledge can be a wonderful thing!
Do you ever ask yourself…
· Why don’t my photographs look like the ones you see in magazines?
· What do all these buttons on my camera do?
· Why are my pictures fuzzy?
· Why do my friends tell me my pictures are boring?
If you answered yes, then this is the course for you!
Over four live, interactive classes this course will teach you how to transform your pictures from snapshots to works of art. Each week your tutor Mark Reeves will explain different aspects of becoming a better photographer and set tasks for you to complete at home before the next class.
The course will cover:
· What makes a good picture
· Understanding exposure
· Taking control of your camera
· Simple ways to improve composition
· How to avoid boring pictures
· Why is aperture so important
· How to avoid camera shake
· Why does the camera sometimes get it wrong?
· Simple exercises for you to try at home
You will be invited to join a closed Facebook group where you can get 1-2-1 feedback from your tutor, chat with other photography enthusiasts and ask questions at any time.
With each session, you will receive a course handout to download and keep. The handouts detail what that session has covered so all the information is there to refer back at any time. Each session will be released weekly, however, you can watch videos in your own time as you will have access to your course for 12 weeks after release!
Lesson times: Monday 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th of June from 6-7pm.
Tutor Mark Reeves has been a photographer for many years, having worked with both film and digital processes. He has worked as a photo-journalist with work published in national newspapers and specialist magazines.
In 2014 he was runner-up in the urban section of the prestigious Landscape Photographer of the Year award. He holds the Licentiate distinction from the Royal Photographic Society and regularly exhibits and sells his work at a range of different galleries.
To get the most from this course you will need your own digital camera which allows you to manually control aperture, shutter speed, ISO (sensitivity) and focus.
