Argyle Street - 10am - 3 Hours
Hassan Nezamian
This class is designed to give you a solid understanding of the fundamental basics of photography; the 'nuts and bolts' stuff that will set you on the path to understanding your camera and how to create great shots.

Armed with these fundamentals, you will have the skills and the confidence to approach any style of photography, from portraits to landscapes and everything in between.

During this course, we will cover such topics as the Exposure Triangle, Camera Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and Composition.

Photography is a technical exercise and there is a lot to learn, but these basics apply to any type of photography. However, as we only have a limited time to cover each of these topics, please keep a copy of this course guide and practice these tricks and techniques over and over again whenever you can.

Taking great photos takes time, practice, patience and consideration.

In the beginning stages,it is very easy to become frustrated that your images don't capture your subject as you would like to.

This is perfectly normal and even professional photographers face this same challenge.

Be patient with it, you're learning and with practice your photography will improve with every shot.

    I launched my career as professional freelance photographer when I was awarded my first photography certificate in 2006.

    I graduated from the University of the arts London in 2015 with honor bachelor 2019s degree and master 2019s degree in photojournalism and documentary photography in 2017.

    In the past decade, I have sharpened the broad range of skills in photography and applied them in a variety of photography sub-branches that rendered me unique opportunities as a photographer providing me with the chance to establish robust communication skills with people of various age groups and culture.

    Being behind a camera has donated me a full insight for perception of global phenomena and themes making me eagerly keen to convey my own definition of art and photography via my tools to the prospective photographers in the young generation.

    Two bodies of work have been published since 2009. Iran Water, Wind, Soil in documenting Iran 2019s natural landscape and Bitterness of war which depicts the long-term effect of war in Bosnia.

    From 2010 to the present date, I have been documenting a series of projects; namely, refugee and asylum seekers daily life in cooperation with Mary hill integration network, diversity of leprosy in west Bengal India partially funded by The Leprosy Mission of England and Wales, Romney Marsh Wool in Southern England and West Wales was defined and implemented, Iranian Leaving room in London related to immigration of four generations of Iranian immigrants.

    I was invited to teach photography within the framework of art workshops in 2011 in Glasgow focusing on basics of photography and studio lighting.

    I have already had over 15 solo photography exhibitions in the United Kingdom during the past 10 years and also I was nominated in the following events for the prize.

I used an old jetty to help compose the photo using elements of symmetry and leading lines. Photo was taken on a Canon 70d with EFS 17-85mm Lens. Settings were 1/320, F11, ISO 200

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
