    Course Overview:
    If you want to understand your camera a little more and begin to master the skills of photography then this course is for you. Your Tutor, Andy Brown, a photographer for over 20 years will teach you the basics about the different modes on your camera as well as what apertures and shutter speeds are, you'll soon learn what your favourite settings are and what gives you the results you want.

    The first part of the day will be spent on talking you through the basics on your camera in our classroom. After a coffee break there will be an opportunity to put into practice everything you have learnt during the classroom session with a practical session outside with your tutor Andy Brown, showing you how to put into practice everything you have learnt about shutter speed and apertures and how to use the ISO setting on your camera.

    We will then return to the studio to show you basic techniques for downloading your pictures onto your computer. We'll also show you a little about editing (choosing your favourites) and finally cropping your images.

    Why not spend the rest of the day photographing the local Alnwick countryside, put into practice all the new skills you have learnt and try photographing Dunstonburgh Castle, Alnwick Gardens or even the Alnwick Castle itself. A fantastic day out in picturesque Northumberland well worth the drive.

    (N.B. Admission charges to the castle and gardens are not included in the course price, these are merely suggestion of where you could visit in the local area).
