Four-week DSLR Photography Course: Wednesday evenings starting January 10, 2018 Craig-y-Nos Country Park

Four-week beginners DSLR Photography Course: "Getting out of Auto: Using a DSLR Camera in Manual Exposure Mode", to be held at The Photography Studio, Craig-y-Nos Country Park, Brecon Road, Pen-y-Cae, Swansea Valley SA9 1GL.

Please phone or email the tutor Bob Grainger if you would like to book a place (£20 deposit required to secure a place). Tel: 07850 656765 info@PhotographyCymru.com

Wednesday evenings 6-9pm - January 10, 17, 24 and 31, 2018

Just £40 for the whole course of twelve hours.

No previous knowledge of photography or camera operation required. The course is suitable for people who already own their own DSLR camera or are thinking about buying one, although I do have two DSLR cameras that people could use on the course (if you own a 'bridge' camera, and not actually a DSLR, then please contact me with the make and model, and I will check to see if it's suitable for the course). The course is open to anyone over 14, but under 18's must be accompanied at all times by an appropriate adult, who may participate fully in the course if they wish, and for free.

Students will be taught, from scratch, how to use the DSLR in Manual Exposure mode, which allows for much more control and for greater creatively, than simply using the camera in an automatic mode. All printed course materials, tea, coffee and biscuits are provided and included in the price.

GENERAL COURSE OUTLINE:

Session One - Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 6-9pm
Finding your way around the camera's controls and settings: Controlling Exposure (how bright or dark the photograph is), by manually adjusting the camera's Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO settings.

Session Two - Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 6-9pm
Exposure continued: Creative Exposure - Freezing Motion: Avoiding blurry images and capturing fast-moving subjects, by working with the camera's shutter speed.

Session Three - Wednesday, January 24, 2018, 6-9pm
Creative Exposure continued: Achieving soft, fuzzy backgrounds for portraiture, and 'everything in focus' for landscapes, by manipulating Depth Of Field.

Session Four - Wednesday, January 31, 2018, 6-9pm
Composition: the 'Rule Of Thirds', framing, foreground/mid-ground/background interest, lead-in lines, perspective, the S-Curve, etc.
Creative Lighting: Basic principals of light - the Inverse Square Law and light 'fall off', "Big light Good; Small light Bad!", plus using small camera-mounted flash lights.

The photography studio is in the grounds of the beautiful Craig-y-Nos Country Park, Pen-y-Cae, on the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The park covers some forty-acres, has two very large ponds complete with ducks, geese, two rivers, meadows, boat house, picnic benches, tea rooms, craft shop, stained-glass shop, toilets and ample parking (free parking for my visitors!). The studio, which is wheelchair accessible (and has nearby disabled toilet and free disabled parking), is the single-storey, red-brick building at the bottom of the car park by the boat house and pond. The photography tuition will take place both inside the studio and out in the grounds (weather/light permitting), and typicall has a maximum of six students. All printed course materials, tea and coffee will be provided and included in the price.

No previous knowledge of photography or camera operation required. The course is suitable for people who already own their own DSLR camera or are thinking about buying one (although I do have two DSLR cameras that people could use each evening). NB. If you own a 'bridge' camera, and not actually a DSLR, then please contact me with the make and model, and I will check to see if it's suitable to use on the course. Students will be taught, from scratch, how to use a DSLR in Manual Exposure mode, which allows for much more control and for greater creatively, than simply using the camera in an automatic mode.

I am a professional photographer, covering around forty weddings a year, in addition to providing photography services for family photoshoots and portraiture, pets, charities, live events and small businesses in south and west Wales. I live in Cwmtwrch, in the Swansea Valley, and I run the photography studio at Craig-y-Nos Country Park.
