The East Cork Camera Group will host a Beginners Photography course which commences in Midleton this Sunday, 8 July. The class will meet at the Midleton Park Hotel at 10am and receive a short theory of photography with topics such as using the correct exposures, depth of field and more. From there, the group will venture out and about for practical work and instruction from experienced photographers in the group. The two-hour long class will continue over the next 6 weeks, with a break on the August Bank Holiday Sunday. Classes will resume the following Sunday.
Speaking with The East Cork Journal, Denis Barry (PRO of the East Cork Camera Group) said, "With regard to equipment needed, the course will cover general photography at first which would be applicable to the use of a camera phone. However, as the course gets more advanced, we recommend using a decent, compact, mirrorless camera or DSLR (Digitial Single Lens Reflex) camera."
The course, a must for all photography enthusiasts or those looking for a fun way to spend Summer Sunday mornings, costs just €60 and includes not only professional instruction and feedback but 6 months membership of the East Cork Camera Group. "Places are limited", explained Denis, "and to sign up or for more details, please contact us through Facebook or email"
