Weeknight photography course
Knowing and Loving your Digital Camera
This six-week, short course team taught by Les and Andrey Walkling provides a thorough introduction to your digital camera and the 'art of capturing what you see and feel'.
Session 1: Introduction. Understanding your Camera
In this session you begin to befriend the functions and features of your digital camera, and how they affect the appearance and meaning of your images.
Session 2: Composition and Focus Exercises
This session studies composition and the art of focusing. You will understand the different focusing modes and when to use them to facilitate interesting and engaging compositions.
Session 3: Aperture and Depth of Field Exercise.
This session is all about depth of field, what it is and how to creatively employ it. Different genres of photography illustrate depth of field priorities and how depth of field changes the spatial relationships in your images.
Session 4: Shutter Speed and Motion Exercises
This session concentrates on capturing/expressing photographic motion and how to use shutter speed variations to prioritise motion and its descriptive effect on your images.
Session 5: Colour Balance and Perspective Exercises
This session is all about colour and drawing in images, including in-camera colour balance for heightened emotional renderings, and perspective changes to clarify the look and feel of your images.
Session 6: Manual Control Exercises
This session recaps all of the skills from the previous sessions only now with your camera in full manual mode for the ultimate creative control of every aspect of your image creation.
