Course S1.2 Basic Composition – How to take better photographs.

Our second introductory course looks at what makes a good or even a great photo.cropped-img_2523.jpg

Perspective, use of focal lengths, depth of field and “F-Stops”, use of shutter speed to freeze time or to allow blurring of movement, rule of thirds, highlights and lowlights, framing and exposure. These are all covered on the course.




untitled-2-13We look at how a mundane shot can be brought to life by the smallest of changes, whether by a technical change for instance changing speed or aperture or by a positional change.

We look at how colour and contrast can affect shots and how the position of the light source, especially the sun, can make or break a shot.

Controlling the field of view and the depth of view using the zoom or by changing focal lengths is also explored.
