Photocourse 1 - Daytime - Introduction to creative photography
Not currently scheduled. Can be run on demand.
This part-time course, run from our studios in Courtenay Place, provides an introduction to the basic skills of photography through practical workshops and assignments that explore the medium's major themes and techniques.
The course is aimed at beginner-level or first-time DSLR users, but intermediate level photographers will also find it a good challenge and learning experience. We won't let you get bored!
You will need your own digital SLR camera or mirrorless interchangable-lens camera.
Photocourse 1 is intended to get you past just setting your camera to Programme and shooting photos that look like anyone else's. We will teach you to take full creative control of your camera, rather than let it dictate the kind of photos you take. All of the creative decision-making in each photo you make will be entirely your own.
We will teach you photographic techniques that will help you to realise your visual ideas. You will start to see photographically, creatively and differently. With a small class, limit of 6 people, we can offer you plenty of individual attention.
Topics covered include:
Course fee: $480.00 including GST.
