Course description

Our half day photography crash course is aimed at complete beginners who own a digital camera with manual settings, and want to take creative control over it. Participants will learn how to make the most of aperture and shutter priority (semi-automatic modes) and understand the creative scene modes of their cameras and how to make the most use of them.

You will learn how to create effects such as shallow depth of field (foreground object is sharp and background is blurred), panning (capturing a moving object while blurring the background), freezing motion and long exposures.

At the end of the course, students will go away with the ability to recreate the effects shown to the right.

    'Had a great experience on the Crash Course this Saturday. Our tutor Liane Harris was great. She was very helpful and patient. The course was informative and helpful taking us through various different aspects of photography. A really helpful day and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get clearer understanding of your DSLR. It has put me on the path to simple but dynamic photography with simple techniques. You certainly won't be using those AUTO settings again. Thanks for a great experience.' ★★★★  Michael Wood

    'Totally loved the course, and now feel confident and equipped for adventures in photography! Very well-taught, pacy course. The time flew and I learned so much. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone and am hoping I can come back soon for more advanced courses.' ★★★★  Rachel Marsh

    'The Digital Photography Crash Course with Emily Stein was great. She was encouraging, knowledgeable, approachable and happy to offer extra advice when asked. The staff were lovely. I can't wait to practice what I learned - and maybe book a place on their Street Photography Course!'
