You will learn all those tricky aspects of your camera settings and controls, master the art of composing a great picture, and find inspiration to get out there and snap. This course is for students who are new to the subject and want to get to grips with their camera, and for those wishing to brush up on their skills.
Will I need any equipment or materials?
You must have manual functions on your camera. For example, you’ll need the ability to change the f-stop and shutter speed settings. You’ll also need a notebook and pen to take notes during the lessons. Please bring a selection of four images that inspire you to your first lesson.
Do I need any previous skills or knowledge?
No previous knowledge is required, but you should be able to follow simple written and verbal instructions.
Will I be assessed?
There is no formal assessment for the courses at Bishopsgate Institute. However, to monitor your learning and progress, tutors will assess your participation in classroom activities.
You will learn
- Understand how to use the manual functions on your camera to produce creative images that also demonstrate technical and theoretical competence
