About

Nottingham Trent University
Monday 1 - Friday 5 August 2022
Monday to Friday 10 am - 4 pm, one week
Price: £475

This course is a mixture of darkroom and computer-based activities.

From camera techniques to editing and printing your final images, the course will cover everything you need to know to become an accomplished photographer of the future.

The course is ideal for school or college students who are interested in photography or who might wish to use photography as part of their studies.

Analogue (film) photography experience is not necessary and an understanding of Photoshop or editing skills is useful but not essential.

On this course, you will:

- explore the city through photography using digital and analogue cameras
- develop and print your own photographs in a darkroom
- learn how to edit your photographs using Photoshop
- make a short 'zine of your work.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course, you'll be able to demonstrate that you're competent in photography and editing your work.

You'll also have a set of images and photo zine to enhance your portfolio.

Where you'll learn: You will be based in the School of Art and Design on the City Campus.

You'll find full-size photography studios, darkrooms and comprehensive Mac editing suites with software for photography editing including Adobe Creative Cloud.

You'll also have access to the library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can't reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.

Level: Open to all

Entry requirement: You should have an enthusiasm for photography and the arts, and an interest in developing your creative and technical skills.
