This course is aimed at anybody who has a DSLR or bridge camera and who would like to take their photographic skills beyond the ‘automatic point and shoot settings, gain confidence and have fun with a friendly group photographing in more diverse lighting conditions, as well as learning more about digital editing techniques back at the centre. As its Springtime (!) the emphasis will be on Outdoor Practical Photography and, weather permitting, we’ll be visiting locations as a group around the Ross On Wye vicinity as much as possible, and learning how to photograph people and plants should the weather prove wet.
The course will also provide an introduction to portraiture, practice with various in-camera techniques for capturing movement, and is a great introduction to landscape photography too. Invaluable advice and printed hand-outs about the more technical side of things for those who are completely new to DSLR photography will help you translate and make use of the array of settings on your camera, and this term’s course will also provide the opportunity for more advanced students and previous learners to expand their working skills in a friendly environment.
Please bring your digital camera, a tripod (if you have one), and your cameras own instruction manual with you. A personal memory stick or similar for transferring images between home and course computers is also invaluable.
Starts; Thursday 26th April 2018 (6.30 – 8.30pm for 8 weeks) – Cost £40
Tina Dorner is a Forest of Dean based photographer who was originally self-taught in photography, owned an overworked Kodak Instamatic followed by a couple of Russian cameras and learnt through mistakes! After taking a B.A (Hons)in Visual Arts as a mature student she has encouraged many others to take up photography as a hobby and provided arts activities in both photography and various crafts. Photography is as great ‘leveller’ for people of all abilities who enjoy developing their skills in ‘Digital’ mode as much as the old fashioned way!
