Digital Photography for Beginners (Level 1) — Part-time

Course outline

Are you interested in learning how to use your digital camera more effectively? This hands- on course will help to develop your understanding of your digital camera, whilst learning the basics of framing and composition. You will also have the opportunity to use professional editing software.

The course is taught in a classroom environment so, unlike online classes of this type, you will have direct contact to experienced tutors and the opportunity to not only learn new skills, but also meet new people with similar interests.

Work full time? We know everyone is busy and it can be hard make time for learning something new, the benefit of this course is that it takes place once a week in the evening, so it's easier to fit it in around other commitments.

You can view the fantastic works of our Media, Photography & Performance students on our showcase website run by our media faculty team.
