  • The exposure triangle, and how to use your camera’s priority modes
  • How shutter speed creatively affects photographs
  • How aperture affects photographs and depth of field
  • The golden rules of composition

  • We will explore a range of photographic genres and techniques including still life, light trails, and portraiture.


Learners will attend weekly lessons in college.

You will need to bring a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera to the sessions.
