Do you have a digital camera hidden away somewhere? Here is your opportunity to learn how to use it – practising your English at the same time.

You will be amazed at the first picture you take after understanding your camera better!

The English Tree in collaboration with photographer Clelia Carbonari is offering a 5-session course which will enable students to use their digital camera with confidence and freedom. Covering a wide panoramic of topics such as portraiture, landscape and macro, street photography and architecture, the students will have the chance to create a personal portfolio of pictures taken during the course and exhibit them to show family and friends.

Each one and a half hour lesson will focus on a specific topic and technical and compositional aspects will be examined as well as personal impressions. Keeping in mind the work of famous photographers and reviewing each participant’s picture, students will develop a critical eye and personal style. At the beginning of every lesson we will review the photos taken during the previous week in order to receive a feedback from different voices and to give the best tips to the students to improve their skills.

What skills will you develop?

– How to use a camera: its basic settings and modes

– Composition rules: make the best out of the situation!

– Looking for the right light: how it can affect the final result

– Working on a set assignment and producing unique/personal results!

– Photoshop basic editing
