This course will draw from a range of skills and will enable you to get a feel for what areas of photography interest you most.
We start with those “complex” aperture numbers and build on the use of macro lenses, as a Wildlife Photographer uses for flora and fauna (bees, moss, leaves etc.).
We will then add the use of reflectors and light, using on-camera and external flash units so you get to try these out for yourself and test out portraiture (and modelling!).
And then, stretching the boundaries of what you can do with photography, we will look at some science alongside some weird and wacky uses, drawing from time-lapse, microscopy and more.
Furthermore, we will be also exploring alternative photographic processes and pave the way for the artisan and design photographer in you!
We’re inspired by your excitement at the range we are introducing you to and hope to see some new faces for this wide-ranging photography course!
