  • Course description
    A refreshing alternative to technically-based degree level photography courses, this programme helps you apply art and design principles to photography, use your imagination and learn how to use the technical capabilities of the camera to compose well-structured and satisfying images. Relative newcomers find that they quickly gain confidence and start to use photography creatively. More experienced photographers are offered a structure which helps them to re-examine their approach to photography and to develop their expressive and technical skills. The ideal camera for the course is a single-lens reflex with either a fixed lens covering wide-angle and telephoto or interchangeable lenses, and which allows you to adjust aperture and focus manually. If you do not have one, it doesn’t mean that you can’t do the course, but you may find a few of the projects beyond the capabilities of some automatic cameras.

        * The principles of graphic design in photography
        * The basic properties of colour
