This course is ideal for novice and amateur photographers in School Years 8-11 (or equivalent if home-schooled) who would like to learn about camera controls and develop an awareness of visual elements and composition.

Following an introduction to Mac computers and basic Adobe Photoshop tools, students will have the opportunity to explore image manipulation and creation. The final outcome will be a presentation and discussion of the resulting images. Throughout the course other artists’ work and ideas will be introduced to broaden Photographers’ contextual and visual knowledge.

The university will provide cameras, but students are welcome to use their own camera if they prefer.

You are advised to book and pay for your course as early as possible since places are limited and places cannot be reserved.

Enrolment will be available online from 4th June 2018
