Digital Photography - In The City

Digital Photography in the City is a practical course that combines all the enjoyment of a photo walk with guided tuition. Whether the concrete high walks of the Barbican, the green spaces of city parks or wonderful views of the Thames at night, this course is about gaining practical skills from learning topics on location in London. Be in-spired by the city and see how your creative ideas can take shape from location to photograph.
  • Who is it for?

    If you know the basics of your camera but feel that you are not using it to its poten-tial, then this course will help you to learn more. You will want to improve your under-standing of the different camera settings to get more creative results. You will enjoy walking and seeing the city through your camera and discussing photography in a friendly and supportive class.

  • What does it cover?

    You will explore ideas to help you see and compose creatively and be encouraged to try new styles of photography. Several of the classes will be carefully structured around trying out different genres from street portraiture to urban landscape and found objects. Other classes will teach techniques.

    By the end of the course, you will have learnt:

    1. New photography techniques and approaches to the different genres from street portraiture to urban landscape.

    2. Learn technical, creative and compositional skills that will help you to interpret what you see into a well-composed photograph.

    3. Develop confidence to discuss and share your photographs with the other stu-dents including presenting your course portfolio

  • What will it be like?

    When on location you will be guided through a practical photography exercise and given specific help through demonstrations and individual tuition as needed. Weekly study sheets will encourage you to learn more in your own time and at your own pace and guide you to make better photographs. You will share and review your

    photographs with the tutor and others on the course and build a portfolio of work as the course progresses.

  • What else do I need to buy or do?

    You will need to bring your own camera which can be either a digital SLR, mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, or an advanced compact camera. You should have a computer or tablet to review and upload your images from home. As the course in-volves being outdoors some of the time you should be confident that you can walk comfortably on location.

  • What could it lead to?

    Students may enrol for another term on this course as locations change from term to term. Alternatively, choose a different photography course or try Digital Saturdays which teaches creative editing skills using Adobe Lightroom.
