No More Photos of Headless People
Tired of those out of focus shots, or chopping off the head of the person you're photographing? Wanting to move on from smart phone photography to a DSLR and don't quite know how to make the transition? Or do you have a camera and don't know what to do with all the settings and buttons? Then this could be the course for you.

This comprehensive course starts on 18th September

Camberwell Camera Club, an established club with over 60 years of history, is running a comprehensive course for photographers who are keen to improve their skills. Commencing on Thursday 18th September, the course involves seven two-hour interactive sessions, running from 7.30 - 9.30pm on Thursday evenings, and three weekend workshops, which will encourage course participants to put the theory into practice.

Facilitators of the course share knowledge on the following topics:

- effective composition

- cameras and lenses

- light: natural and artificial

- using imaging software

- landscape and urban photography

- portrait photography

- exhibiting work, and

- mounting and framing images.

Take your photographic skills to the next level!

The three workshops offer practical applications for photographing landscape scenes, people in outdoor settings, and still life set ups.

Ken Spence, president of Camberwell Camera Club commented "This course is perfect for people who know how to use their camera in a general sense, but want to take their images to the next level! We are very proud to have received such great feedback and look forward to running the course again in 2014."
