Today’s class will be focused on capturing the bright colours of summer through our viewfinders. We’ll spend time in Richmond Park, capturing the colours of nature and the wildlife in the park. Our students will learn how to use aperture creatively, blurring the backgrounds to make the flowers and natural details pop, and sharpening the backgrounds in their landscapes, capturing all the details.

We will also look at famous photographer’s colourful photos and discuss how we can use colour creatively in our photos. The second part of the class will be spent down by the river, capturing the colours of the wildlife and boats on the Thames. Our students will learn how to use shutter speed to stop the motion, capturing the birds sharply in the air, or splashing in the water. They will also learn how to use slow shutter speed creatively, capturing the movement of people, creating inspiring colourful photos of movement. Our students will finish the day with a great portfolio of colourful images, ready to go up on the wall at home!

* Please bring a packed lunch
