Basic News Photography

With Simon Dolby from the KM Charity Team
If a picture paints a thousand words it stands to reason getting your photos used in the press could be very useful to your cause. This three hour session will take you through the basics of news photography giving you hands on experience of how to take a photo your local news desk will want to use. This is a hands on session so bring a digital camera and its USB lead so images you take during the day can be downloaded to a laptop or Notebook. You should also have practiced downloading images to the laptop so this does not need to be covered on the course.
