This one-day course offers an opportunity to develop your creative and technical camera skills with professional guidance from Yorkshire-born photographer Chris Ceaser. Chris’s fine art landscape images have been exhibited across the north of England and his collection of greetings cards are on sale in many outlets in the Yorkshire area. The striking interiors and varied gardens of Castle Howard provide a very special location and inspiration for the day.
This course is aimed directly at photographers who have moved beyond "beginner" level and want to learn more about their digital SLR camera and the landscape photography process. The course emphasis is on practical learning, combining brief classroom-style sessions with hands-on experience. It is designed to give a better understanding of how a camera works and to demonstrate how to improve images by following some basic principles.
The mood for the day will be informal and fun. Topics covered include: camera set up overview, metering the light, correct use of ND Grad filters to control the different exposure levels within a scene, creative composition and post-capture image evaluation and how to understand and read the camera's histogram. Participants should bring a tripod as this will be used throughout the day. The course is designed around a "landscape" photographic theme, and is not intended for those wishing to learn specific skills such as portraiture, sports photography etc..
