Basic Photography

Learn how to take photos that make you proud .

We start the basic photography course from the very beginning and cover all elements that you need to be in control of in order to create good images:

  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speed
  • ISO
  • Light and Exposure
  • Focus Control
  • White Balance
  • Rule of Thirds
  • Composition and Vantage Point
  • Movement (freezing and blurring)
  • Retouching ( an introduction to Photoshop and Lightroom)

The basic photography course consists of five 2-hour classroom sessions and one field trip to a Natural Park (National Park Zuid-Kennemerland). The two hour period begins with peer feedback on the assigned homework (indoors and outdoors), followed by a lecture, then hands on exercises and finishes with questions.The small class sizes (max 8) guarantees everyone will get the attention he/she needs. Classes are designed to be effective and fun, suggesting a variety of assignments in which you can apply everything you learn.
