Our Digital Photography Next Steps course picks up where Getting Started with Digital Photography left off. Delegates will either have attended that course, or have a good appreciation of the topics covered there. It is suitable as a photography improver’s course, for those making the transition to digital or wanting to use more of the facilities offered by their camera.
The course is designed to expand on the building blocks of photography, taking a deeper look at some of the capabilities offered by modern digital cameras. Delegates will learn how to take even more control of their camera, producing ever more creative results and expanding their repertoire.
During the course, we will provide numerous, illustrative examples to help explain each topic. Bring your camera along and try out what you learn as you go with a number of useful exercises.
