Introduction to Photography and Photoshop

Introduction to Photography and Photoshop

This is a short course offering an affordable and enjoyable introduction to digital photography and post-production processes.  This course is useful if you have a good digital camera and are looking to explore the creative potential of its functions and recognise the benefits of this complex and adaptable piece of equipment.

What will you study?

This course will introduce you to some of the principal functions of your camera and how to over-ride automatic and semi-automatic programmes that many cameras employ, to explore the creative potential of your exposures. You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of lighting conditions to understand their effect upon an image.  The digital revolution has enabled old darkroom techniques to be replicated on the computer screen, and some more complex image manipulation to take place, and you will learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop software in post-production of your images, as you are challenged to use your photographic skills to express ideas and concepts.

The tutor will advise you week by week and identify where to meet at the start of the sessions, as the course may be delivered on two campuses, both are quite close to each other.
