Love to Learn - Digital Photography: tips, tricks and inspiration
- Published 23rd April 2012
Pearson, The Royal Photographic Society's most recent corporate patron has just launched an online photography course. It has been developed to help learners to change from point-and-click photography to a better understanding of their camera’s potential and aims to show how to capture incredible shots. Society members, too, will find plenty of interest to help them develop their own photography skills.
The course runs over six units and sets out to give direction to your shooting, as well as allowing you to capture notes in your personalised Workbook. With over 10 hours of learning, including videos, you can cover these and the practical activities at whatever pace suits you.
The course starts by dipping your toes in the photographic waters by learning, or refreshing your memory, of some quick and non-technical tips. It then moves through working with colour and light, composing and making the photo, and editing and sharing images via email and/or the web. There’s also a unit offering inspiration from other photographers.
The course tutor is John Roe who runs many of The Royal Photographic Society'sown workshops, and the course has been created in consultation with best-selling photography author, Tom Ang – so you’re in safe hands.
Once the course has been run then The Society's own workshops and distinctions are likely to be the next step for many.
The feedback so far has been enthusiastic:
"The course not only explained 'what' to do, but 'why', the 'because' impact of various options. It's often missing in manuals."
"Understanding Exposure and Working with Light contained information that was new for me and so I particularly enjoyed these sections"
"I really liked the Introductory and closing videos of both. It's reassuring to have a friendly person."
"I think there is just the right amount of information to get the point across without overwhelming the learner."
