On Monday 29th May, Edward Parker will be running two photography courses entitled “Garden and Landscape” and “People and Photography”.  These are suitable for people of all abilities and with any type of camera.  The idea is to demonstrate when and how to get the very best out of any sort of camera and explain the basic principles needed to get great pictures.  during the course you will be shown how to change the settings on your camera to improve the results.  For example, the lens zoom settings are particularly important.

It is possible to get excellent images with almost any sort of camera with a bit of tuition.  In many ways compact cameras are as good as DSLR’s for general photography.

A lot of the success of general photography relies on understanding a little about composition and the use of foreground, background and lighting, all of which are equally relevant irrespective of the type of camera used.

A tripod and reflectors will be available for participants on the day, but do bring your own along too if you have one.  Outdoor shoes and a coat are also recommended.



Each three hour course costs just £25.00 per person (payable on the day) by cash or cheque.
