As an addition to my other work as a professional Fine Art Photographer, I am now teaching courses in digital photography. I am currently in the midst of a 4 session course entitled “Improve Your Image”, teaching the basics of digital photography to pupils at Croydon High School, an Independent girl’s high school in Surrey. The course is great fun and has been very useful to the students, as I understand from feedback from the teachers, .
Improve Your Image Course Topics
Each session has a mixture of both technical topics and creative ideas and tips. The topics for each session of the course are as follows:
- Knowing your camera – We go through the workings of a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera and look at the key controls. The idea is that you control the camera and not the other way round.
- Picturing your picture – How often do you take a shot but the results are disappointing and not at all what you expected? We get an idea of how to look at the world with a photographer’s eye.
- Adding a dash of Passion – The rules and guidelines for good composition are there to help and not stifle your creativity. “Live adventurously”, experiment, express yourself.
- Pictures with purpose – Every picture tells a story. Here we explore how to capture the essence of a scene and convey a story, whilst at the same time producing images which have artistic merit.
Do you want to take the course?
I am planning to hold courses from time to time – if you would like to participate in a course, have a look at the “Improve Your Image” page on the Season Images web site or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
