Digital Photography and Photoshop


Course Overview

Across five days, campers will learn all the key functions of a modern DSLR (digital) camera and how to use it to create great images worthy of framing and putting on your wall. Suitable for ages 12+. 

We start with the DSLR cameras and teach you all about the functions and controls. We provide cameras or you can bring your own. We’ll go through the basics of composition and shooting – lighting, exposure, depth of field, and framing to really get to grips will all the possibilities of your camera and set up.

Next, we work with Adobe® Lightroom and Photoshop to organise, process, edit and retouch photos.  We’ll even show you how to create special effects with exciting photo projects!  Finally, learn to export and publish your work to showcase online.  Walk away with a professional-quality photography portfolio!

This Digital Photography and Editing with PhotoShop course will give you a strong base and get your creative juices flowing.
