£550

This beginners course at NTU is responding to the huge growth in ownership of digital SLR (DSLR) cameras and the increased demand for digital images for personal and commercial use.
The course is designed to take novice photographers and teach them the basic science, technology, craft and art of photography, enabling you to develop the knowledge and skills to create technically sound, interesting and professional images.
You will move away from shooting with the camera in automatic mode and start using the various camera modes that enable you to take control of your images.

There will be inspiring projects that will explore artistic expression, reportage, commerciality, nature, people and community.

Further reading will be suggested to enhance your knowledge.

During this course you will:

- learn about contemporary digital photography today and current technology
- identify successful digital images and discuss the aesthetic qualities of your work and that of other students and professionals
- plan a photograph, from composition to digital printing
- work in different light situations to create successful images
- manually adjust focus, shutter speeds and exposure on your digital camera to - produce effects
- create unique images on location and in the studio environment
- edit images using basic Photoshop functions
- promote your images online to others.

What will you gain?

The mix of art, craft, science, technology and practical advice makes this course very exciting and ideal for the enthusiastic amateur photographer, artists and designers.

The course would be of use to anyone wanting to improve their photography skills whether as a hobby or a gateway to further study or employment.

"This course gave me impetus I needed to get out of a rut and think about the full capabilities of my camera. I especially enjoyed being part of a group and being inspired by its members, as well as having the support and expertise of our tutor. I feel much more confident about my skills and I now enjoy photography even more." AS

"This course is pitched at a good level - challenging but achievable. It has given me the confidence to progress further." LT

"A great tutor, who set a good atmosphere for learning whilst helping and encouraging each other." (DD (Summer 2016)
