Photography

Course Overview 

BRIT Kids offers an exciting Photography course that will explore both Digital SLR and traditional darkroom photography. It is rare for a school to have darkroom facilities these days; however, at BRIT Kids we can offer both studio set- ups for digital photography, and a specialist darkroom for black and white traditional photography. Alongside this, students can use one of our Mac suites to digitally enhance their work in Photoshop. Every lesson is practical in nature, giving students the practical knowledge to follow their own creative vision. From taking photographs to developing their films and printing pictures, students will learn every step of the magical world of darkroom photography. With Digital SLRs, students will learn how to compose their shot, work with both natural light and studio set-ups, and develop their creative thinking by responding to briefs and reworking their pieces in Photoshop.
