About the course

Learn to capture the world around you, understand your digital camera, and improve your photography skills with a Digital Photography Course at Paston College. 

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.

Please note that courses may be cancelled if minimum numbers are not met. Please be aware that if you are no longer able to attend your course you will be offered an alternative date where possible, however no refunds are available unless this course is cancelled by Paston College.
