Summer Photography Course 2017 - Walthamstow & District Photographic Soc.
Mon, 26 Jun 2017, 19:00 – Mon, 14 Aug 2017, 22:00 BST
Each year the Society host a Summer School which spans 8 weeks in June, July and August.
In 2017 the course will run from 26th June until 14th August.
It is highly likely to be oversubscribed so if you are interested in attending please sign up as soon as possible.
The couse is both practical and theoretical with the simple aim that by the end of the course you will take better photographs.
Over the years 100s of people have attended, enjoyed, and gained from taking part in the course.
We find that people atend for a whole variety of reasons with common reasons being;
- Stuck in a rut of taking snapshots and wanting to take quality photos instead
- Buying a dSLR and never taking it off the automatic setting
- A rekindling of an interest in photography
- Technique and science of photography
- Photographic outings
- Practical assignments
There will be at least 3 outings on weekends in the locality of Walthamstow. Additionally each week practical assignments will be set which relate what has been covered that week in the course.
This practical work is optional and whilst reviewed this is done annonymously. Many people find this the best aspect of the course as it stretches photographic skills into areas they may not previously have taken.
We find that most people tend to own dSLR cameras but bridge or compact cameras are often owned. In the Society many people use bridge or compact cameras including competition winners.
