Beyond Basics Photography builds on the skills developed in Digital Photographyour foundation course.

Delivered over 5 half-day workshops, tutor Dirk Wallace will continue to build your technical and creative skill set across core areas of digital photography, including:

  • Advanced camera settings: Learn to harness your camera's full capacity through advanced understanding of your camera's manual settings.
  • Technical development: Develop your control of lighting, colour and exposure for different effects.
  • Composition and creative perspective: Develop your creative flair and eye for composition.
  • Photographic genres: Build your experience in macro, landscape, artistic photography, and portraiture. 
  • Post Production: Delve further into image manipulation and handling with specialist software.
  • Artistic Guidance: Specialist mentoring in your particular areas of interest

You'll need to bring your own camera SLR (DSLR), or at least a high end compact camera with manual (M) setting, the camera manual and a tripod. There will be some studio lighting and other equipment available for participants to use, however Dirk welcomes students to bring along any other lighting or equipment that they would like to learn how to use.

If you are unsure whether to enrol in the Digital Photography or Beyond Basics Photography, please contact us and we discuss your level of experience and skill.
