Event description

Description

Recently bought a new camera or been given one as a present? No idea what to do aside from leave the camera on Auto and shoot? Then this course is right for you. We cover the basics of digital photography so you can move from Auto mode and start to produce creative and beautiful photography you love. This course is based between classroom and on location, and you'll leave with plenty of useful reference materials. Refreshments are included throughout the day.

If you want to learn how to blur the background in your images, up your game with landscape shooting and get some help with composition in your images, this is the course for you!

During the beginners' course you'll learn about:

  • Focus - an introduction to this topic, making sure your photos are tack sharp every time
  • Lenses - learn about how different lenses can give you more creativity with your photography
  • Shooting modes - we'll explain the main shooting programmes (like aperture priority) so you understand the top dial of your camera
  • F-stops - how to use aperture creatively in your images and get that elusive background blur
  • ISO - your camera's sensitivity
  • White Balance - so that colours are correctly captured
  • Shutter Speed - to avoid camera shake and blurry images
  • Depth of Field - selectively focusing parts of your image

Maximum number of attendees is 4, so you'll get lots of individual attention!

FAQs

Where are the courses held?

The courses are held in Corsham, near Bath. We use the studio of English Photoworks in Corsham, just outside Bath: this is where we do the class-based work. The majority of the work is practical and hands-on, and we do this in the beautiful countryside in Corsham or elsewhere near Bath.


Can children take the course?

The simple answer is yes! Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, however. For your peace of mind, we have public liability insurance and an Enhanced DBS Check, which is the highest level of suitability to work with children and young people.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Send us an email at hello@englishphotoworks.com or call on 07777 676771 and we'll help you!


What can I bring into the event?

We'll supply you with plenty of resource material to take away with you, so you don't forget everything you've learned! But please bring pens/pencils and a notebook. We'll mostly be working outside, so clothes to keep you warm and dry are essential. If you own a camera, of course bring that, making sure that the battery is fully charged and that you have a properly formatted memory card.


What kind of camera do I need?

The course can be taken with almost any digital camera, and if you don't own a camera, we can probably lend you one for the course. Other courses, such as the studio lighting course, require a DSLR, which we can lend you if you do not own one. If you own a tripod these can be useful for the courses, but are by no means essential.


Terms and Conditions

  • If we cancel the course, then you have the right to a refund or rescheduled session. Cancellations and not turning up to sessions will invalidate your payment and refunds cannot sadly be issued.
  • We have a secure room and lockable door, but we cannot take responsibility for missing items.
  • All information is correct at time of publishing and changes to course dates can be made if no delegates are on the course.
