Description for each class:

1. Shutter Speed & ISO 
For any photographer who is wishing to gain a grasp of how to take better pictures, understanding what ISO is and how it relates to Shutter Speed is essential. In addition to Aperture, these elements are sometimes referred to as ‘the three kings’ and are necessary to create the perfect exposure, which in turn can be manipulated to create dramatic effects when not using the camera in ‘auto’ mode.
2. Aperture & Depth Of Field
Understanding how Aperture relates to Depth of Field (as well as the exposure triangle) is important to gaining the correct focus for not only group subjects but for blurring the background if required, which is often used in portraiture. Using the right aperture for the light conditions as well as the type of shot is key, especially as the camera will not always select the right one. For instance, wide aperture is not generally used in Landscape Photography.
3. Composition
Working through the lens with composition and learning the basic ‘rules’ can literally transform an amateur photographer’s work in a very short time. Understanding how to look for ‘Leading Lines’, using the rule of ‘Thirds’ and the not-so-common ‘Golden Spiral’ are covered to show the difference between cropping and how successful photographers combine composition with Lens ‘Angle of View’ to create wonderful dynamic imagery.
Then, as the course develops we move on to:
4. Landscapes
5. Portraiture
6. Post-Processing, Workflow  & Retouching
Minimum 6 people per class
