In the second week of the course we covered basic photography techniques. We talked about exposure and composition. Our tutor, Zoe showed us some famous news pictures to illustrate different techniques and how an image can tell a story. We then went out around Dalston to practice these techniques with our cameras. Everyone had a great time and there is a real passion for photography in the group. For me, looking at the photojournalism images and discussing them with the group was very revealing. Great photographers can really inspire you to make new types of imagery from a different perspective.
