St Johns Church, Birtle
Our beginners photography course in Birtle Bury, in the countryside just to the North of Manchester is for people new to photography or who find that they never move away from their camera’s AUTO feature.
Courses in Bury are £85.00 and include refreshments, a sandwich lunch and free parking at the historic Pack Horse Inn
You do not need an expensive camera to enjoy the course, but it must have controls that allow you to change the shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
By the end of the day you will be able to:
- Understand and use the manual controls of your camera.
- Understand exposure.
- Understand how to compose a photograph that is pleasing to the eye.
- Understand how light and movement affects your photographs.
- Use creative techniques to stand out from the ordinary.
After a welcome over a coffee we will start the day with a briefing. You will be provided with a detailed lesson plan to guide us through the day and help to embed what you are learning.
With the help of the lesson plans and notes for you to keep, we will spend the first half of the morning developing your knowledge of how your camera works and is adjusted. We will pause whenever you want, to ask questions. We will get out before lunch, to begin to put this into practice.
Over a sandwich lunch you will have the opportunity to re-cap some of the morning’s points and then we will be back out to put the tuition into practice in locations that are a short walk away. The furthest we will walk is about 1km using either quiet country lanes or footpaths, so please consider this if you have mobility concerns and get in touch before booking if you would like more detail.
This event is fully booked.
