The classes will be aimed at beginners and (even if they don't have a DSLR camera) they can shoot on compact cameras or even on their smart phones etc.
The course will focus on basic composition and simple tips to improve their photography. The course will be a mixture of theory and practice.
· Week 1 Theory – Composition
· Week 2 Field trip - Shooting on location
· Week 3 Theory - Understand light
· Week 4 Field trip - Shooting on location
· Week 5 Presentation and evaluation.
The course will be fun and educational and should improve the students’ ability to capture more interesting images.
After each presentation tutor will give feedback on students work, this positive and encouraging as well as giving subtle advice on areas for improvement. After all presentations are complete tutor will give overall feedback to group, again this should be positive and encouraging. The tutor will then reflect on what has been learned and achieved before outlining the syllabus for Foundation Level 2. Foundation 2 requires students to purchase a DSLR camera and have access to Photoshop. The School will require some basic studio lighting equipment.
