Beginners Guide to Digital Photography – Level 2






This course is the logic follow up to our Level 1 course. It is aimed at those who already know the basics of digital photography, know how their camera works and who want to step it up a level.

Held in the evenings and based in a relaxed and professional classroom environment, this course includes three sessions over three weeks. Alongside theory, participants will undertake practical projects both indoors and on location in the local area, as well as being set small practical assignments in between each session.

Each participant on this intermediate DSLR course will further their knowledge of digital photography and their creative potential, by learning exposure in-depth, understanding histograms, sensor sizes, perspective, light metering and more.

This course will also cover lenses, filters and focal lengths as well as mastering composition using a combination of creative and technical knowledge. Image processing and the best options for post production will also be discussed and participants are encouraged to bring in an image for discussion.
