Colour, budding flowers and lovely light will be captured in today’s photography class. Our students will learn how to use their focus and camera settings creatively to capture spring in the amazing grounds of Waddesdon Manor.
We will cover camera mechanics and how aperture, shutter speed and ISO affect our photographs. Our students will learn about aperture and how to create depth of field to make their spring images pop! They will also learn how to make their images brighter and darker, making use of the spring sunlight, creating fun silhouettes and highlighting the bright colours. Our students will finish today’s class with a great set of images depicting spring.
