For many years my camera only came out on high days and holidays and then the auto mode was the only one I knew. So in evening classes I did a Level 1 Photography which taught me basic camera skills and then Level 2 which was an introduction to different types of photography. Both were 30 week courses with an exam and an exhibition at the end. Following this I felt the Level 3 course was not for me – it seemed more directed to the budding commercial photographer. So with the help of my camera club and Royal Photographic Society’s (RPS) senior judge Trevor Gellard FRPS, I decided to aim for a distinction with the RPS.
In July 2013 I passed the assessment and was awarded their Licentiateship.
Here is the panel of 10 photographs I used to show the different photography skills I had acquired.
