What is the course about?

A 5 week course that looks at how photographers can develop a project, and make a series of well accomplished images. A sense of place will look at different photographic techniques to make a “portrait” of a place chosen by the student. Learn how to engage photographically with your surroundings, and how to use a camera to elevate the mundane of the everyday into remarkable images.
• The course focuses on creativity but full technical support will be given.
• Learn some fun techniques to improve picture making.
• Learn how “photographer’s see” by looking at some great practitioners and examples.
• Learn how to improve composition to make more dynamic images.
• Learn core cropping skills to improve images
• Explore the creative use of aspect ratios such as 16:9 to give images a wonderful “filmic” look.
• Learn how to build a photographic project and develop a series of coherent photographs.
Each session will cover a specific technique with tutor presentations and discussions. Students will be emailed class notes/hand-outs before each session to ensure they can prepare. There will be a practical activity in each session where students are expected to practise the lessons techniques.
A time booking system will also be in place during the class, so students can have 1 to 1 sessions with the tutor to facilitate each weeks task.
Students will be expected to spend some time between classes developing their skills and home assignments will be set. We will also be using Padlet, a great secure online picture resource where students can share their images with the class and join in with peer to peer support and tutor feedback.

What previous experience, knowledge or qualifications do I need for this course?

However those with more experience are more than welcome, join to get out of a “photography” rut and engage with some new creative techniques!
