About How to Use Your Digital Camera

The course will combine photographic theory and practice enabling beginners in photography to be guided in understanding their camera and the fundamentals of photography. Furthermore, students will learn how to use their cameras as a medium for creative expression.

Learning Outcomes –
Understanding your DSLR Camera
Using Manual Mode
Using photography as a creative tool
Theory and History of Photography
Build a portfolio of work
Have fun with this new tool for creative purpose

What You’ll Need –
DSLR camera with 1 or more lenses. The standard zoom(s) are great but if you have more lenses please bring along.
UV filters to protect your lenses (not necessary but suggested)
Spare battery for your camera, original or generic (not necessary but suggested)
A tripod is essential and it’s a good idea to get one that is in line with the size and weight of your camera & lenses (If not everyone has one we can organise to hire/borrow)
Two or more memory cards 16GB or larger
Basic stationary i.e. notepad/book, pens, highlighter etc.
Laptop/computer to review and prep weekly homework

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for How to Use Your Digital Camera are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
