Why not sign onto this fun and exciting photography course run in a friendly location by Marc Newton Photography. In this photography course you will learn everything needed to get your camera out of the automatic modes and start taking great shots. You will start by learning how to use your camera’s settings and get to know all the jargon that surrounds them. The course will then build into learning about shutter speeds, apertures, depth of field and more importantly how to control these elements of photography. You will look into framing, composition and the post production of shots (retouching in digital imaging programs). Tasks will be set to challenge your newly acquired knowledge and there may even be some prizes!!
