Do you want to learn more about photography?
The club will be led by our teacher Billy Forward. He has a degree in Documentary Photography from one of the most highly regarded photography schools in Europe, the University of Wales, Newport. Billy spent two years working as a photographer before deciding to become an English teacher.
The course will start with a class on the basic use of a SLR camera and some fun techniques. The following weeks we will look at some of the masters of photography in each of the specific genres, look at some of their work and learn about and try some of the ideas we have discussed. As homework between each class you will try on your own what you have learnt and then bring a print of your favourite photo you have taken to show and compare with your colleagues.
At the end of the course you will choose one of your photos to display in an exhibition/competition at CCB. An image will be chosen from the exhibition to be permanently displayed in the school. You should have your own digital SLR camera. You can bring a manual camera with film but you will have to share a digital camera to practice the techniques.
