Light is principal in photography, and we will teach our students how to capture it using different methods with their cameras. They will learn about exposure, and how aperture, shutter speed and ISO work together to control the light in the image. We will work with over and underexposing to lighten and darken their images, along with using aperture and shutter speed to influence their subject matter in their images.  Our students will finish the morning with a great set of images recording the light on the streets of Brighton and along the seaside.
