Intermediate Photography Course

Intermediate Photography Course - £135 - TBA - Private Tuition £325 - 221s £199

If the government Covid Roadmap remains on track I should be able to start running courses again from Monday 17th May 2021. Providing nothing changes six people can meet indoors so I should be able to run my first weekend group course on Saturday 22nd May 2021 followed by the Intermediate Course on the 5th June. Further relaxation of the rules is expected on 21st June 2021 so hopefully we can start getting back to normal and run normal indoor course too.

Numbers will be limited to four students as the maximum number allowed for the indoor session under the rules is six, including Jacqui and I.  Social distancing and Covid protocols will be in place both indoors and outside. This will be a maximum of four people per course and social distancing and sanitation protocols will still be in place. People will not need to wear masks but contact will be avoided as much as possible. Food will not be provided so please bring a packed lunch.

Jacqui and I have both had our first jab but we will not be insisting that attendees have been vaccinated.  If the weather is fine then we may decide to hold as much of the course as possible outdoors.

The Intermediate Photography Course is the natural progression to your Beginners Photography Course for those who want to better understand exposure and how their camera works. The Intermediate Photography Course goes delves deeper into your camera settings and menus and we explain how to use white balance and depth of field more creatively. There will also be some extra tips and tricks on composition and perspective.  The Intermediate Photography Course also demonstrates how to use polarising filters and ND filters to show movement in water.

On the beginners photography course I aim to show you “how to get your camera off the Fully Auto setting and start shooting excellent pictures in just one day”. The Beginners Photography Course offers so much more than just how to use your camera and it is the foundation for all our other courses. For this reason we highly recommend that everyone attends a beginners photography course first.

The Intermediate Photography Course aims to give you a greater understanding of the different camera setting covered on the beginners day plus many more camera operations. Most importantly I will cover the ” Exposure Triangle” which is the relationship between ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed in great depth. This knowledge will help improve your chances of getting “the shot” under many different lighting conditions. After attending this course you should find your success rate for good pictures increases a lot but if you do make a mistake you should be able to figure out why.

“I have to be honest and say that I was a little reluctant to do the beginners course because I had done one previously, with someone else, and I thought I knew enough to qualify as an Intermediate photographer. However, I had to eat humble pie and admit I learnt more than enough for it to be worthwhile. A lot of it was refreshing my memory from things I knew but had forgotten but there were also several things that, though basic, I just didn’t know! I think the beginners should remain a mandatory requirement for anyone.” Paul Rose

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Everything I wanted to know about the more advanced techniques was covered. I’m really looking forward to going out and trying what I’ve learnt, especially regarding shutter speeds combined with aperture settings.  Margaret Rose

A great day. Lots of technical information to process but great course notes for me to refer back to. It’s great to have all the camera settings explained clearly so I can use them to improve my photography shots. James Wesson

This course was particularly helpful to understanding the exposure triangle and I found this invaluable. It’s quite an intensive course but I feel a lot happier finding my way around the various camera settings. Now to start saving up for the next one. Karen Collinson

I was reluctant to do the beginners course, but extremely glad that I did. Even after taking photos for a lot of years it helped me to know the fundamentals and build on then. Getting off the ‘auto setting’ was crucial and gave control. The beginners course was the best money that I ever invested in photography. Jim Tyson.
