This course gives students with their own Digital SLR the chance to learn how to properly use it over 5 weeks. Your experienced tutor will guide you step by step through the functions on your individual camera model and how you can move away from auto modes in order to create stunning, professional looking images. Students will learn about Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, File types and everything else you need to get a quality exposure in a variety of environments. The course will teach you about the technical nature of photography as well as how to compose better images. If you have found it frustrating trying to get the most out of your Digital SLR this great value course is the solution you have been after.

What level is this course?

This course is suitable for students at our Beginner level.

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

Other course levels include:

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.

What should I bring?

You must have your own digital SLR camera to class for every session as this course is designed to teach students how to use their own cameras.

Students are also advised to have a USB memory stick with them to backup their work. Though you can store files on your computers.
