Digital Photography for Beginners


Love photography, want to understand the workings of your digital camera better than you do now to get those quality pictures and improve your photography skills?

This brand new Digital Photography Leisure Course will assist the budding digital photographer by improving your skills with the basics of image making and enhancing your use of the main functions on your digital camera.

The course is designed for those who are relatively new to the use of an advanced camera who would like to know more beyond using the auto functions and will include:

  • composition & framing
  • lens focal length
  • shot angle, exposure
  • focus, aperture
  • shutter speed
  • ISO
  • white balance
  • colour space
  • lens choice
  • light metering

As well as improving understanding of the technical aspects we will also explore the creative use of each of the above functions to further improve your photography skills.

After completing the course you should be able to confidently find your way round a Digital camera, know which settings are appropriate for each situation and understand how to correct any mistakes.

You must bring along your own digital camera (fully charged and with plenty of storage) to do this course. Ideally you should have your own digital camera that has adjustable settings. A DSLR or Micro 4/3 camera is perfect but a Mirrorless camera or Bridge camera will be fine. If at this stage you do not own a suitable camera, a DSLR will be available to borrow during the course session but please note they cannot be taken off the premises.
