This course consists of two parts and varies each month, taking inspiration in part from the group’s interests but always looking to build inspiration and skills in creative photography.

Part 1. Camera Intermediate Skills pushes Teens to challenge their use of their cameras more extensively than in our Beginners course. We look (depending on each group) at metering, track focusing and other functions in more depth. Flash is also covered as many decidedly “hate” flash, until they know how to use it… It’s actually simpler than you think! But you need to know how, so we show you.

And through experimenting together you will build projects over two weeks with a view to turning them in to print in the final two weeks of this course.

Additional subjects will include using analogue (film) cameras, such as Toy Cameras (Holga, Lomos, polaroid, etc.). Bring your own or borrow ours.

Our lighting studio also awaits, with a variety of lights and light sculpting tools such as reflectors, grids, snoots, softboxes and more. By experimenting with different angles of lights and sculpting methods we look at why and how photographers create their vision within an image.

Part 2. Create your own book, cards, poster, invitation (for example using collage) and more. Or build a portfolio. The creative design part of this course is held at our studio using our computers. You will be introduced to Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and possibly InDesign skills for the layout of images, viewing the creative sense of space, choice of font and why, how images work together and how text can change the message of a photograph. Additional points covered include:
