Photo skills in the frame on college course

ANGUS College’s digital photography and image editing courses will get under way later this month at its Montrose Learning Centre.

Introduction to Digital Photography requires no prior digital photography skills, but some basic computer skills are necessary. The course is suitable for compact, bridge and digital SLR cameras and will help all students understand their camera settings and capabilities. The course covers the transfer of images to PC and how to back them up. Students will also gain an understanding of composition, lighting conditions and also basic digital image enhancing and editing.

Still Images Editing Using Photoshop Elements, requires no prior image editing skills but again basic computer skills are necessary. This will illustrate improvements which can be made to edit and enhance digital photographs using industry standard photo manipulation software.

The course covers basic digital camera skills and techniques as well as scanning and copying images and their storage and back-up.

Still Images Editing begins on Tuesday, September 18, and Digital Photography on Wednesday, September 19.

Both courses will be held at Angus College’s Montrose Learning Centre on North Esk Road,

They will each run for 12 weeks and will cost £128. Successful completion will result in an SQA credit at SCQF level 5.
