Our photography course dates for 2017 are now on the site and open for booking.
We have listened to feedback and scheduled almost all of our group courses on a Saturday and we have increased the number of beginners photography courses.
We are still offering beyond beginners photography courses, but slightly fewer of them in the mix in 2017.
Our steam train photography courses also have a full schedule in 2017 and this year we are running half day courses which coincide with special events on the East Lancashire Railway such as their famous 1940s weekend and their classic bikes rally which will offer keen a photographers an extra something to inspire some great shots. We will of course still be going into parts of the railway not open to the public such as the signal box and the engine sheds.
Places on all our group courses can be bought as photography course gift vouchers which make the perfect present for a friend or loved one (or even yourself).
People sometimes ask us which is the best course to go on for them if they are not sure of they are a beginner or would be better on a beyond beginners course.
Everyone is slightly different of course but a simple rule of thumb is to ask yourself: when I pick up my camera do I sometimes still use the AUTO setting? If the answer to that is yes, or you feel a bit unsure about the exposure triangle then you would be better going for a beginners course, but let us know in the pre-course questionnaire we send you that you have some experience already and we will do all we can to adapt the course on the day.
If you are very comfortable with your camera’s main functions and the exposure triangle, but want to move your skills on, then a beyond beginners course is almost certainly the one to go for.
As always, if you have a question about our photography courses, then please give us a call on 01706 452840 and we will be very happy to help.
See you on a photography course soon!
