Creative Camera Course

Felt excited and a hint of trepidation that your world of picture-taking was about to change forever when you pulled your camera out of its box for the first time? Despite your best intentions, have you found that your pictures are just-not-happening?

Do you know your way around your camera’s manual settings, but are not sure where to point your lens and how to develop your creative eye?

Your Camera Your World

Here’s a cool little secret

Photography is the tool you can use to capture what your eye sees and your heart feels. Photography is thrilling, rewarding and a teensy-weansy bit addictive!

But….hang on there cowboy/girl….

‘We seldom take great pictures. You have to milk the cow a lot and get lots of milk to make a little piece of cheese.’ ― Henri Cartier-Bresson

What’s Henri mean by that? He means – at least at the beginning of your photography journey – focus on a photo topic or theme that interests you, and shoot it, like, a lot. Practice makes perfect.

Jocelin cupcake‘I am really enjoying this journey and finally absorbing myself in something I have wanted to do for many, many years. I have loved this course and learnt a lot. Food is going to be lots of fun!’ Jocelin

.

Andrew 08 ‘I am quite shy when it comes to photographing people, but this week’s info is inspiring me and giving me some courage!! I am really looking forward to shooting some portraits!!’ Andrew

.

Malcolm Beths Pick 1‘I feel as though I have achieved what I aimed to do with the course i.e. take me well and truly out of my comfort zone and take on the challenges of taking photos of people! Your lessons were spot-on in terms of anticipating things to look out for: the good (the wonderful beauty of children) and the not-so-good (short attention spans, distractions, iPads, Playstations etc). I learnt so much out of this theme, more than just about photography if I’m honest. About people, about children, and about family. I also have learnt a whole new level of respect for the skill required to get great images of children like you do!’ Mal

leah children‘Thanks for giving us confidence in this course. I wouldn’t have been courageous enough to do this if it were not for this assignment and your words of encouragement.’ Leah
