Course description

Intense Foundation of Digital Photography – Level 2 is a logic follow on from our Level 1 course. It is aimed at those who already know the basics of digital photography, know how their camera works and who want to step it up a level.

The course is set in a relaxed and professional classroom environment and participants are taught theory which is backed up by a significant location based practical session in the afternoon.

Participants will learn a wide range of topics including exposure in more depth, histograms, maximizing the capability of the lens and utilizing white balance. Image processing and the best options for post production will also be discussed and participants are encouraged to bring in an image for discussion.

    ‘I recommend the course to everyone who wishes to master their knowledge of DSLR. The atmosphere is informal and the group is small so you have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics, which is great. The course is very well designed and structured and covers all you need in order to produce great quality pictures.’
    ★★★★★  Nadezhda Vasileva

    ‘Did both Level 1 and Level 2 foundation and thoroughly enjoyed both, despite having a reasonable understanding going into it. Liane was a great teacher, drawing you into her world and helping you make sense of it while also having fun. Looking forward to experimenting and attending one of the more advanced courses soon.’
