Two day course - intro to digital photography (DSLR only)

Two Day Photography Course

To begin, we'll recap and expand on all the skills and knowledge you have acquired from the first day (see above). We’ll all visit a great nearby location, where we’ll take part in an exciting photo-shoot. You will be given a set brief with specific tasks that you’ll have learnt from the previous day’s session.
 
You will have the course trainer with you and you’ll be rolling your sleeves up and getting ‘creative’ by putting into practice everything you have learnt. Practice makes perfect, so this is a great way to become completely immersed and learn at a deeper level.

We'll then head back to review the images taken, so we can 'ooh' and 'aah' at your new creative talent. We’ll advise, critique, give additional tips and techniques, ensuring you have the necessary skills. We'll then be on hand for a Q&A session. Finally, we’ll let you loose on the world,  as you will be itching to use your DSLR, noticing how much your photography skills have been improved and how confident you feel now.
