AN AS­PIR­ING pho­tog­ra­pher from Yax­ley has won top prize in a Farcet stu­dio’s lat­est train­ing course.

Pho­tous Pho­tog­ra­phy, which op­er­ates from The Old School in Main Street, Farcet, ran the six-week in­ter­me­di­ate pho­tog­ra­phy course re­cently.

The win­ner of the In­ter­me­di­ate train­ing course was An­drew Ter­rell from Yax­ley with his win­ning pho­to­graph of a night-time shot of Glas­gow, from when he was in Scot­land on hol­i­day.

Richard Houghton, who runs Pho­tous Pho­tog­ra­phy, said: “He took a great shot of a night-time scene of Glas­gow.

“It was an aper­ture of f22, which is a small open­ing - gave a greater depth of field to make it sharp and also made the street­lights look like they were stars. There were also dra­matic light trails from the cars be­cause he had set a good ex­po­sure.

“All of the par­tic­i­pants were all good - the stan­dard is mak­ing it harder and harder to pick a win­ner.”

Pho­tous Pho­tog­ra­phy of­fers a wide range of cour­ses de­signed to as­sist both the novice and the more ex­pe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­pher.

The next one is the Ad­vanced course for peo­ple with greater knowl­edge of their cam­era, its set­tings and the ef­fects these can cre­ate.

This six-week course starts on June 7 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. It costs £20 per ses­sion, or £110 in ad­vance.

There will also be fu­ture An In­tro­duc­tion to Dig­i­tal Cam­eras cour­ses that costs £15 per ses­sion, or £80 in ad­vance as well as a be­gin­ners’ class which will cost £12 per ses­sion, or £62 in ad­vance.

There are no con­firmed dates yet for these classes.
