Stay Connected Through Digital Photography

From Your Camera To The World

Bring your family and friends a little closer to home through photography. Kensington and Chelsea College is launching From Your Camera To The World – a new short course that teaches people the skills to capture and edit photos digitally, and how to share their images online with family and friends.

The course starts on February 27 and runs every Wednesday, from 10am-1pm, for five weeks. It will also run two more times in the year starting on April 17 and May 22 for those unable to join in February.

Through structured lessons, workshops and practical sessions in a variety of studio and location set-ups participants will learn how to use the internet, develop photography techniques, how to edit photos and use photo sharing sites such as Flickr.

Learners of all ages are welcome, especially those aged 50 and over.

With the recent explosion in online photo sharing, digital photography has become an easy and fun way to stay connected to those you love. From grandparents emailing their grandchildren photos from the other side of the world, to friends sharing snaps of their latest night out via smartphones – capturing and sharing memories couldn’t be easier.

Recent research shows that *12 million adults in Britain share or receive content on their mobile phones every week and a third of the total content is made up of personal photos.

* Research carried out by market researchers BrainJuicer for mobile phone network Three. They asked 2,000 British smartphone users last month about their sharing habits.
