Focusing on the detail through hard work

Digital photography is a subject that holds appeal for many learners – learners, who for example, love rambling, wildlife, urban landscapes, history and architecture; all find digital photography a skill that fits in really well with their passions and hobbies and where there is always more to learn.

To support our learners’ interests, experienced tutor Mick Scraggs has been delivering Digital Photography and Photoshop courses throughout lockdown to beginners to more advanced learners.

Learning sessions have explored how to use various functions on their digital cameras and how to manipulate imagery using Adobe Photoshop. As well as developing their technical skills, learners have been able to share skills and ideas for future projects in their groups and have been able to form friendships whilst learning.
As Mick is an active Welsh learner, he has welcomed Welsh into the classroom. As a result of this, many learners who have little or no Welsh language skills have also been able to learn phrases in their lessons; this has also boosted course enjoyment for our Welsh speaking learners who, as a result, have been able to work within a ‘language community’, contributing to the bilingual culture of the course.

Mick’s regional manager Sarah says, “Learners often comment on Micks patience and helpfulness is getting to grips with their digital camera and learning and exploring new techniques.”

Mick says, “From what some of the learners have told me, the courses have had a positive impact on their mental health – especially over lockdown. The courses have given them something positive to focus on during these trying times.”
