till stuck in the 'Auto' mode on your camera? Want to take better pictures? This course is for beginners who own a Digital Camera and want to learn more of its functions. Learn how to operate your camera in manual mode, make correct exposures in a range of situations and understand aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus and more. This course will give you creative control over your camera thereby encouraging you to take photographs with intention, rather than letting the camera do all the work. This intensive, creative course will increase your confidence and you will soon see your skills - and your photographs - improving.
By the end of the course you will be able to
Understand how a DSLR camera works
Choose the right shooting mode and camera settings for particular shooting situation
Make good use of different focal lengths
Understand the exposure triangle
Expose images correctly using semi-automatic or priority modes
Understand and experiment with the aperture, shutter speed and ISO controls
Recognise and use different composition techniques and the visual elements effectively.
Ideally students will own a camera that gives access to manual controls. A keen interest in the subject is key to your success and the ability to attend the sessions regularly in order to get the most out of the course is desirable. As part of the course you will be asked to read tutorials, take notes, listen to instructions and discuss related topics, therefore students should have a reasonable level of skill in speaking, reading and writing in English. This course can be taken alongside with any of our digital design, film and photography courses and will help you to gain the confidence you need when working with cameras and film making equipment. The best thing to bring with you is energy, enthusiasm and commitment.

I heard about Morley College from another student back in autumn 2015 and decided to check it out. I was completely in awe about all the courses on offer and have been a regular student since January 2016. I started with Beginners Pattern Cutting, increased to Intermediate Sewing and am currently enrolled in 5 courses including Professional Sewing Techniques, Couture Garment Construction, How To Make Your Own Block and Occasion Wear. The tutors are phenomenal and have such a broad knowledge. Teaching is both in groups but also individually depending on the project. I absolutely love coming to my classes and could be at Morley College every day!
I've just finished the Thursday evening wood-carving classes at Morley College, and I've enjoyed it so much. It was my first wood-carving course, and I'm only doing it for fun, and I've already learned so much. The teacher, Tim Norris, is so friendly, helpful, and great at explaining the technique that I've already signed up for next term's course!
