When it comes to photo taking, get beyond the use of your phone. Commencing September 23rd, Dublin Camera Club are running a course for beginners, which takes place at 6.30pm and is repeated at 8.30pm. This September photography course assumes no knowledge of photography and is designed that in the period of 9 weeks you will have a good understanding of your own camera and its controls and that you will have sufficient understanding of the use of the camera to produce high quality shots.

September Photography Course: What You Will Cover

  • You will understand the principles of exposure so as to control the image you want, whether that be a crisp landscape, memories of your travels or an image of a friend giving that sought after sharp portrait on a soft background.
  • You will learn the basics of editing your images using inexpensive/free appropriate software, improving on the image that you captured in your camera. (Post processing)
  • Elements of good composition will be dealt with and the basic compositional dos and don’ts to improve your images.  Both colour and black and white image production will be dealt with.
  • While the focus of the course is on the use of digital cameras, film is not forgotten and the basics of the use of film is covered as is darkroom printing – in demonstration mode.
