The Manor House has now reopened! Come and explore the new storytelling of 1,000 years of history.

Beginners Photography Course - FULLY BOOKED

This course will explain how the camera works and how to use the camera settings, how to use light to advantage and using composition to improve your photography. Cereta, the course leader, hopes to encourage a few more people to become engrossed in the delights of photography. 

Sorry this course is now fully booked but we will be running similar courses in the near future so do keep a look out.

Course outline

  • A series of 6 two-hour workshops running from Thursday 16th September through to Thursday 21st October.
  • Covers the basics of photography using the setting of Cogges Manor Farm.
  • Six places available.

Course aims

  • To encourage those new to the delights of photography or those who would like to come off the auto setting on their camera.
  • To provide enough knowledge to enable you to bring insight and creativity into your own photography and take it to a level above the usual.

It is assumed that participants will have the use of a bridge or DSLR camera which both allow settings to be set manually. A choice of lens would be good but not essential. It is also recommended that you bring along the camera handbook so that we can negotiate the camera’s menu system. Cereta is also happy to talk about processing images and, if time allows, she could add a demonstration in one of the sessions.
