A Year With My Camera: Module 3
CONTROL THE LIGHT
Light is the most important element of every photograph you take. If you ever want to have an image on the wall, win a competition, do well in camera club - you must learn to see the light, and control how it falls across your image.
THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU IF...
- you are a beginner photographer
- you are disappointed that your photos don't look how you expect them to
- you want to express your creative vision with your camera
The course includes 4 lessons with video instruction and checklists.
Each of the lessons has a practical photography homework, and there is a final project to complete once you have done all the lessons.
This version of the course does not include individual feedback. This course plus feedback starts at £300 and is only offered when I have availability; the feedback version is currently sold out until 2018.
BY THE END OF THE COURSE:
You will be able to...
- see the light as your camera sees the light
- control the direction the light falls across your image, and understand why that's important
- recognise hard and soft light, and create whichever kind you want
- be aware when the camera is likely to create a colour cast, and know how to fix it
- use a reflector to create a fill light and soften the shadows
- understand that the light is an element all to itself in your image, as important as the subject itself
WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
"I used to use my camera on automatic all the time - I now understand how the different settings and working in manual go together." Vivienne
"I love the week by week approach, you are given tasks to do to practise the knowledge you've gained." Su
"This course has made me actually get out of my comfort zone and practise. Wonderful teaching." Caroline
"Thanks to Emma Davies I have finally understood the basics of photography, in an easy to understand way, but at the same time without leaving anything behind. She is concise and to the point in her explanations, you will learn loads without wasting your time, everything is practical and the exercises will help you achieve one concept after another, step by step, at your own path." Cristina
"Beginners will find that Emma never talks down to you or expects you to understand techno speak without an explanation, though you will soon be quoting shutter speeds, ISO's etc., like true professionals." JW78
