The Course:
This two-session, Fast-Track creative digital photography course focusses on a more hands-on approach. Although sit down theory is a must, it is integrated throughout both sessions, in a fluid and non-tedious manner.

Get off the AUTO mode - is our mantra, and that begins the very moment you enter the studio. In order to awaken or find your creativity whilst unleashing the full potential of your camera the Manual mode will be your mode of choice.

In saying this, the course is ideal for you if you have a DSLR camera or a compact digital camera with manual controls i.e., you can control APERTURE, SHUTTER SPEED & ISO.

This Creative Course consists of:

2 x 3 hour sessions, from 6:30p.m. until 9.00 p.m. (open from 6:00)

Both course sessions include a blend of theory and hands-on practical, with your camera. You will be continuously taking photographs, on both days, and critiquing these with other students. The course adopts a hands-on fast-track method of approach, designed to assist and deepen your discovery process.
