Do you sometimes look at your photographs and feel that they are “missing something”? Perhaps they lack some of the power and interest of the original scene; or maybe they just don’t look like what you saw in your mind’s eye when you pressed the shutter button. If so, then this course is for you.

On this course you will learn how to take better photos. We will look at tips and tools which help you to compose the best photograph you can; ideas for how to make the most of light, or the lack of it.  We’ll touch on some of the “technical” functions available as we need to, but this course is much more about cultivating your creative and imaginative skills.  It doesn’t matter whether you have a camera phone, a compact camera or a full D-SLR camera: all you need is something which can take digital images, and a desire to have fun taking some pictures!

Pictures do their own story telling and our memories are precious, usually contained in a shoebox of old photographs holding our moments in time. Why not learn how to pass them on safely for posterity in a photobook?

This course will explain the techniques and give guidelines in copying the original photographs to an electronic source eg. Laptop/IPad. It will be shown how the photographs can be enhanced and demonstrated how they can be laid out artistically, with a storyline text, securing them in a hardback album to withstand the ravages of time and enable future generations to look back and see family in their own place and time.
