What is the course about?

What will I learn?

The course will show you the potential of your own camera and how to access and use the individual features and settings.

Using your DSLR camera, you will learn how to get the most out of your camera using the best settings and experimenting with other photographic equipment.

You will learn how to take a good portrait, how to use multiple settings, how to take pictures in lowlight and much more.

You will be informally assessed by the tutor with the completion of set tasks, and you will have the opportunity to self-assess your weekly progress using an individual learning plan. You will also complete a mini portfolio of handouts.
