What did you do:
I completed an online course and it was all about photography.
The workshop was called ‘The Photography Masterclass’ and it was put on by an online learning company called ‘Udemy’. It taught me all the ways to take close pictures and long distance pictures,shutter speed,and long exposure, plus lots more.
Where did you do this:
I did a course called Udemy online. Because it was online, I was able to do it from home. It was a fourteen hour course, that was broken down into sections that taught me about photography.
When did you take part and who took part with you:
I took part on a website called Udemy. I worked on it on my own, from home. I completed a few sections a week for approximately six weeks. I completed this in Autumn.
Did you do research in advance?(if you used the internet state please also state the sites you visited,insert original evidence eg fliers,photographs of posters ect )
I searched on the internet for online photography courses, I this one was really good, and had a massive discount, so I chose it.
Describe your experience:
I accessed the course online. There was 27 sections and 100 lessons and each video was about 4 minutes long and one to two topics were covered In each section.After a couple of lessons the teacher would challenge me to take some pictures with the new skills i learnt. I really enjoyed the challenges and i was really pleased with some of the results i got.
Did you learn anything new:
I learnt all about Shutter speed and how the longer you leave the shutter open the brighter the picture will be.I also learnt about long distance. And how I can get some really nice pictures over a large amount of space. I also learnt all about photo depth and if you can get one thing I focus and the rest out of focus it can look really nice. I learnt all of this from the photography course called Udemy.
They taught me a bunch of photography skills and one of them was how to get a shallow depth of field
Another thing i learnt was how to change the shutter speed
To allow more or less light into the camera to get a lighter or darker photo.
This photo is much brighter so it gives a much more cheerful look to the picture.
