As professional photography tutors we see so much talent and potential come through our London Digital Photography Courses. Today we are looking at the stunning work of Paul Blake who has joined us for a Beginners Photography Course and two 1:1 sessions with Ion. All of the images in this blog have been captured by Paul and I’m sure you will see why we are so proud of his work.
Paul first signed up for a Beginners Photography Course having bought his first camera, a Canon 600D, for a trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. The Lights offer such a visually beautiful and mind blowing experience that Paul quite rightly wanted to be able to get the very most out of his new camera and capture some images that he could treasure forever.
Discussing his Beginners Photography Course Paul says: “I knew absolutely nothing about the various functions of the camera or even what to look for when taking a photo. By the end of the two day course I was hooked and knew that this was going to be a hobby that I would enjoy for a long time.”
Investing in a sturdy tripod, Paul travelled to Norway. Naturally, he found it very difficult attempting to capture such a complicated and unfathomable phenomenon as the Northern Lights, but using the knowledge that he had acquired from our two day course and a great deal of trial and error, he was able to come away with some shots that he was happy with.
