Exploring Photography Genres

268 TUTOR: Brian Anderson

This fun and inspiring course is aimed at those who enjoy taking photographs on their digital cameras, iPads or smartphones, but who now wish to explore different genres or types of photography. You will learn how to create pleasing, striking and well-composed travel, nature, landscape and non-studio portrait images. The course theory and techniques will be illustrated by examples of the tutor's wildlife, landscape, portrait and travel images from his expeditions around the world. You will have an outdoor photo session each day to take genre themed shots around the College and its surroundings, as well as a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park to practise the techniques and theories within the different genres covered on the course.
