A SIX week course designed to help people master the basics of good photography has been launched in Brandon.

A SIX week course designed to help people master the basics of good photography has been lunched in Brandon.

The free lessons, starting this month, will enable people to understand their cameras better and to take, print and enjoy better pictures. The course will culminate in an exhibition of photographs taken in and around Brandon by course participants.

The course is run by Brandon Foto-Imaging Group, a new community group set up by experienced local amateur photographers Noel Cator and Doug Kendall, to help others enjoy photography. The sessions are funded by a grant from Forest Heath District Council.

Noel Cator, co-founder of Brandon Foto-Imaging Group, said: “Good photography is a skill and pastime that can enhance people's lives. Too many people fail to get the best out of their cameras.

“These sessions will be friendly, practical and straightforward, enabling anyone to take pleasure and pride out of capturing a good photo. We are very excited about the final exhibition. Brandon is a beautiful, picturesque area. We hope to foster pride for where we live by celebrating photographs taken by local people of local sights.”

The course begins on Tuesday, June 22, from 7.30 to 9.30pm, at Brandon Church Institute on London Road and runs bi-weekly (July 6, July 20, August 3, August 17 and August 31).
