MORNING, EVENING & WEEKEND CLASSES

Intro to Photography

The world of photography changes, and so our short courses should change as well. Introduction to Photography is the newer, better version of the previous Digital Photography 101 course; updated and with more contact sessions to explore your creative side.

Our course caters for the enthusiastic beginner to intermediate level photographer and takes a varied approach to teach the fundamental concepts of Photography. Through a combination of theory classes, online resources, supervised practice sessions, and assignments, students learn both the theory and practical application of photographic techniques to take stunning images. 

An introduction to visual literacy supplements the taught technical skills which, in turn, support the comprehensive lecturer feedback provided on submitted practical work. 

This combination helps the learning photographer to develop a sound understanding of the creative opportunities that accompany their evolving technical know-how.

Structure

The course consists of two sessions per week for four weeks.  Classes are held on the Tuesdays and the Thursdays for the duration of the course.

Participants will need to complete homework projects in their own time.

Outcomes

  • On completing this course, participants will have:
  •  A practical and theoretical understanding of the useful fundamental concepts of Photography
  •  An understanding of photographic composition and visual literacy

Course Fee Includes

  • 15% discount on print from Orms Print Lab for the duration of the course
  • Student work curated and printed for an exhibition opening at the school’s gallery.
