The course is for those who already have some experience in using a digital camera and wish to develop their knowledge and skills further. The emphasis will be on students working on both self-identified and tutor-led projects with expert guidance. The edition of Photoshop software used on this course may vary from your own. We do, however, aim to teach transferable skills that can be applied to a variety of applications.
Please note:- If you are storing any data/images on transferrable data devices (memory sticks, portable hard drives, etc), please make sure that you have back-up files saved at home and when removing devices have followed the 'safely removing hardware' guidelines on the PC.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
- use your camera more confidently
- understand more about functions and settings
- use photography techniques to take better pictures
- use more functions in the software to manipulate your pictures
There will be a little 'homework' after some sessions, e.g. taking photos to use in the next session, but you will also probably want to practise what you have learned.
There is no qualification for this course.
