"The Complete Introduction to Digital Photography!"

Learn to use your amazing DSLR! After just a few lessons you'll be taking control over the images your camera creates, instead of just randomly clicking and hoping for the best!

"Introduction to Better Photography" is a comprehensive course covering all of the basics of photography in great detail.

Here's a breakdown of just some the topics covered...

»Equipment - learn more about the gear
you already have (and want). What to buy and what not to buy.

»Digital - do's and don'ts of digital capture, plus basic workflow techniques for editing, saving, archiving and sharing etc.

»Exposure - take control of those mysterious shutter and aperture settings

»Composition - make every photo more interesting with better compositional skills

»Portraiture - learn ways to make your subjects look and feel more natural in portraits and candids

»Flash - discover how using flash (correctly) can improve your images

»Landscape - make better scenics using the right filters, film and lenses


No prior photography experience is required.

The course runs for 8 classes in total, which includes 7 evenings and 1 field trip (typically on a weekend morning - date TBA). Students will be given assignments from each class which will be critiqued at the beginning of the following session.

Requirements: Students must have a Digital SLR
Students should be prepared for a little "homework" between classes, as there will be an assignment relating to the topic of the week.
Includes a set of class notes

Class size limited - be sure to register early
