The Spring course filled up pretty fast and since there’s been more demand, we’ll offer an extra course starting in May.
Basic Photography (Digital)
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:
- Shutter Speed
- 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 5 two-hour classroom sessions and one field trip to the Zaanse Schans https://www.dezaanseschans.nl/en/ . The two hour class begins with an introduction (visual presentation) on the topic of the day, followed by a detailed explanation. After that you get to put into practice what you’ve just learned through a series of hands-on exercises. After every class you get all the materials e-mailed to you, together with the assignments for the following class (homework). Ideally you are able to spend around 4 hours every week working on the assignments (self study). The small class sizes (max 6) 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.
