Introduction to Digital Photography

Introduction to Digital Photography

Our Introduction to Digital Photography courses are perfect for anyone new to digital photography or those who have had their camera for sometime and would like to learn the basics, or have a refresher on the principles of digital photography.

This practical workshop will teach you how to balance exposure and the effects that ISO, aperture and shutter speed have on your images. You will also learn some tips and tricks with composition to help elevate the aesthetics of your photographs.

Once you have been guided through the manual controls of your camera and gained a firm understanding of exposure and composition in a classroom setting, you will head out to some iconic London locations and put your new skills to the test under the expert guidance of a City Academy photography tutor.

Our Approach

Our photography classes are designed to fully equip you with the technical knowledge you need to get the most out of your photography, and provide you with projects and exercises to utilise your creativity. The classes are limited to a small size, so tutors are able to offer you the technical support you need, give you practical hands-on experience and constructive feedback to develop your photography skills.

All of our classes involve focussed, classroom based theory learning, but major on practical exercises. We are committed to offering an enjoyable experience as we guide you through comprehensive technical training and build your confidence as you explore your creative ideas and experimenting with various techniques.
