  • Camera familiarisation
  • Camera buttons and functions explained
  • Lenses, focusing and focal lengths
  • Shooting modes
  • Aperture, shutter speed, ISO and how they interact
  • Exposure and exposure compensation
  • White balance and colour temperature
  • Composition
  • Basic retouching

What to Bring

Your Digital SLR camera and manual, a fully charged camera battery, a memory card and something to write notes on.

 ** This course will be delivered online in Term 2 via Zoom and email. Email us at for more information. Should lockdown restrictions be lifted, we will resume face to face classes at NSCC.

Here’s a little taster of what you’ll learn in class.

Tutor: Zara King

Zara is a qualified photographer and Beginners’ Photography teacher, who specialises in naturally lit, documentary-style photography. A story-teller at heart, Zara strives to capture the in-between, otherwise unseen moments, where people are at their most comfortable and most pure. My favourite part about teaching Beginner Photography is the moment it all clicks together and finally makes sense. And we’re all in this together, as I also learn something new with every class. Knowledge is a journey, not a destination.
