'Q&A's ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE...

Q WHY ARE THERE JUST FOUR STUDENTS ON THE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE?

A There are a maximum of just four people per day on the photography course to ensure plenty of individual tuition, yet with the dynamics, interaction and sharing that a group generates

Q WHO ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES FOR?

A The photography courses are designed for owners of 'digital SLR' and 'bridge' cameras, suitable for beginners and improvers

We'll ease you into what may seem a complicated technical subject, and reveal it to be a creative, intuitive way to express your photography passion

Q WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE?

A We aim for you to have familiarity with your camera enabling you to confidently take great photographs

From the results of the photography course itself, you will have some fabulous images, which you'll be proud to frame and display, plus a range of images which show development of technical skills

Q I AM A TOTAL BEGINNER. DO I NEED EXTRA HELP?

A If you are a complete beginner (As in "Help! I've just opened the box!!!") we recommend an individual tuition session first, to get the most from the photography course

Q WHAT IS THE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE CONTENT?

A Emphasis is on learning 'by doing' in a hands-on, fun practical way

In the morning, we look at camera basics, including iso, white balance, focus control, exposure compensation and all the information you need to confidently use your camera. We'll move from auto programs to the programs which allow more control

We also look at the artistic side of your work, including composition: how to 'see' a photograph, viewpoint, framing and cropping

We'll learn about window lighting, lighting control with 'fill-in', close-up and macro photography, and 'depth of field'

Then we'll explore location photography (weather permitting!) around the unique historic Mills and also in in beautiful Darley Park with the River Derwent and weirs, trees and natural landscape

We'll experiment with filters; tripods; cable releases; time exposures; using reflectors and fill-in flash

Then, back to the studio where we'll learn how to take stunning flash photography using professional lighting, opening up new possibilities of creatively

This is followed by discussion of the work produced, with questions and answers
