Andy Smale - Photography tutor

Course 1: Camera Basics

In the right hands, any modern camera, whether a DSLR, system or compact camera, can produce images of high quality. To make the most of its potential you need a good understanding of its basic functions. In this module we will cover topics including: Basic control layout; Lenses and focal lengths; Exposure – aperture and shutter; Metering; Focusing and depth of field; ISO, image size and filetypes.  Session length 2.5 hours - cost £95.

Course 2: Image Processing

Practically every photographer these days understands how apps can help you get the best out of your images. No camera will capture a scene exactly in the way that the eye sees it - image manipulation doesn't therefore have to be "cheating", instead it can be about reproducing the feeling experienced at the moment it was taken.

This session will look at the techniques that you can employ with Lightroom, Photoshop or similar applications to help you bring out the best in your images from a technical and artistic perspective.  Session length 2.5 hours - cost £95

Course 3: Photo clinic

We all have "nearly" photos for which we can't quite put out finger on what's not working. In this session we invite you to bring along some of your photos on your laptop or USB stick to review together.

We will work through what you were trying to achieve, looking at whether anything could have been done differently at the time of taking and exploring whether edits can be made that can improve the finished product without losing sight of the original vision.  Session length 2 hours - cost £80.
