If one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to take up photography or to gain a new skill, then keep on reading!
Local photographer (and all round supporter of bloggers!) Andy Greenacre will be running Beginners DSLR Photography Courses this year. Each course is for a full day and includes a pub lunch (yus!), a booklet to take home and a camera loan if required.
The course will give you the skills to become acquainted with a DSLR. You will learn about aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. If those words are just a jumble to you now, don’t worry, Andy explains everything very clearly and provides practical demonstrations so you can get to grips with the technical terms.
I went along to a few of Andy’s Photo Walkshops last year that he ran with fellow photographer Craig. The Walkshops involved hands-on learning with a sociable walk around a Suffolk town. Although I had taken a couple of photography modules at Uni, I just couldn’t get to grips with the link between aperture, shutter speed and ISO. But, by the end of the session it had finally clicked!
The practical demonstrations and the chance to take lots of photographs whilst adjusting settings made everything suddenly click in my brain. If you’d like to read my full review, click here.
Andy will be running the courses in Southwold on 9th March, in Ipswich on 27th April, Aldeburgh on 11th May and Framlingham on 8th June.
Courses cost £95 for the day. Quote @seesuffolk and get a £5 discount! Email Andy to find out more.
