Our Extending Your Digital Photography Skills course moves on from our Digital Photography Next Steps course, expanding some topics in more depth and introducing a number of new concepts. 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 covered in both our Getting Started with Digital Photography and Digital Photography Next Steps courses. The course looks at a number of capabilities of modern, digital cameras, that are often overlooked or are perhaps unknown to the photographer. Delegates will further enhance their control of their camera, producing ever more creative results and further 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.
