What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This course follows on from the beginners course and assumes an understanding of how shutter speeds, apertures and ISO work together. The aim of the course is to build confidence using the camera and students are set weekly projects to explore composition and lighting. We will be using RAW files and explore the photographic genres in greater depth. Please bring your own DSLR camera, USB lead and manual to the first session. No compact cameras.
The emphasis is on a learning through a mixture of theory and practice and looking at the work of both historic and contemporary leading practitioners of the medium.
A different topic will be covered each week and students will be expected to photograph subjects between sessions and bring pictures into sessions to share their discoveries with the class. We will begin to work with RAW files.
