Description of photography classes

Are you a budding Photographer looking to learn new skills or do you just wish your photos were that little bit better? Well we could have just what you’re looking for and you’ll be helping those less fortunate along the way.

We have teamed up with Water Aid and the other Activities 4 Water groups to bring you:

Photography 4 Water

Each week we will be running a Photography 4 Water group meeting at the chaplaincy, and for a very reasonable price you can come along and try your hand at a variety of activities designed to broaden and hone your skills. You don’t need to have a big DSLR camera, in fact you don’t need a camera at all. If you’re just interested in finding out if photography is for you, then come along. There will be plenty to do and there are always spare cameras around that you can have a go with. You’ll be able to network with and learn from your peers, take part in competitions, discussion groups and short talks on specific aspects of photography, and even more if you become a member of the group on Facebook. You’ll also be able to get advice on a variety of subjects from general information regarding kit, to what the law says you can and cannot shoot.

In addition, we will be running basic, intermediate and advanced workshops throughout the year, giving you the chance to take your photography to the next level at greatly reduced prices compared to the high street – and all the while you will be continuing to help those in need.

Very little in life is for free, so help us help others get something so fundamental to life as a drink of water and we’ll make sure you become better at photography. This combination of tuition, networking, unbiased guidance and making a difference helping others cannot be found anywhere else, so take advantage while you can.

To Follow is the intended content for the next 10 weeks. Have a look through it and see if there is anything you think would benefit you and help make you a better photographer.
