This course will help you develop your portfolio of pictures through personal projects. Weekly sessions will include group discussion and critique of your work, as well as time to develop and modify your images using Photoshop, supported by the tutor. The work of selected famous photographers is also covered.

Taking a digital image is often only a part of the process of making a picture, so this course will support you through finding your subject and finalising your vision in Photoshop with 1:1 tutor support. Previous Photoshop and RAW processing experience is not required as the course is aimed at beginners/improvers with this software.

Each week we will review and comment on composition and technique of pictures submitted by participants, to help develop your personal sense of picture design.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on 04/05/2020 and 25/05/2020

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

After completing this course you will understand how to make pictures that fulfil the potential of the RAW file and your vision of the finished image. You will be working on favourite subjects and developing a portfolio of images. Beyond this Abingdon & Witney College offer a range of additional courses to consolidate and expand your photography skills.
This is an ideal follow for those who have completed ‘How the camera works’ and ‘How to See & Take Better Pictures’ or are already able to operate their cameras fully and are familiar with the Exposure Triangle, semi-automatic settings, depth of field, as well as composition and picture design.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2019 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £100 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page under 'Info Centre' at the top of the page.
