The course itself takes place in a very friendly and relaxed environment. It will consist of various presentations, demonstrations, question and answer sessions, etc. Each week comprehensive notes on the nights topics will be handed out for you to keep. The course runs each Wednesday at 8:30p.m. beginning on the 14th of January for 8 weeks. Enrolment for the course takes place from 8p.m. to 8:30p.m. on Wednesday January 7th 2015 – the rest of the night will be a relaxed meet and greet between new and old members (we are a social society after all).
The course content initially begins with “A beginners guide to photography”, then moves on over the following weeks to cover Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, The Exposure Triangle, composition, lenses (e.g. do you know what a lens baby is?) tripods, camera controls, saving your photos to your computer, printing, caring for and displaying your photographs, to name but a few.
