Beginners Classes Programme 2018-2019

Once again, this year we are going to run a series of monthly classes on photography for members. The classes will focus on beginners using a range of cameras, from digital compact cameras, but to digital SLR cameras. The intention is to have small, interactive meetings, where new members can ask questions and contribute to the discussion without feeling embarrassed. There will be ‘homework’ exercises which are reviewed the following month. Notes will be distributed electronically after each class.

These classes will be open only to members of the club; this year there will be a charge of 30 per person payable in advance to cover the cost of renting the hall etc.

We have booked the hall for 8 Friday evenings, on the last Friday of every month from October to June (skipping December). If numbers are too low to justify use of the hall, classes will take place at my home, and dates may be rearranged.

The programme consists of a series of ‘Basics’ classes, first on using your camera, and then on managing and editing pictures (using Lightroom and Photoshop Elements), intended to develop fundamental understanding which we can build upon later.
