Digital Photography for Improvers
If you know about digital photography, this course will help you further improve your skills.
If you are already familiar with digital photography, this course will aim to help you develop a style within a selected genre and research other photographers and genres. You will build up a portfolio of work throughout the course. You will look more in depth at how to compose a shot using the rule of thirds and how to choose the correct lens for the shot. Finally you will be taught to become proficient at shooting moving objects (panning) for an assignment on motion. Over the course you will build up your own portfolio to show the group at the end of the course.
Each week you will be given a different theme for assignment, for example, landscapes, people, still life and each week there will be a constructive critique of the previous week’s assignments.
