13 Modules/115 Segments

  Digital Photography Level 2 - Intermediate Course

This Digital Photography Level 2 - Improvers Course is aimed at those who have been taking photographs for a while and want to push the boundaries a little further. Amongst many other things, the course will show you a range shutter speeds and aperture numbers that will completely transform your creative photography. To get the most out of this course your camera needs to have Aperture and Shutter Priority modes, ideally an SLR.

This course assumes that you have been attempting other modes such as Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority, but not necessarily understanding when some effects work, and some do not. Our goal will be to connect the various dots you already have, while showing you some simple, yet key techniques.


At the end of the course you will be able to understand and use all the the extra buttons on your camera while also being able to take better shots, even in dark, tricky situations like night time and low light.

Full Colour, Illustrated PDF Tutorial Notes

Full colour, illustrated PDF tutorial notes which are carefully worded and appropriately illustrated are an integral part of our courses. Because lectures tend to have an effect which lasts only a short while, particularly if no notes are give out, we believe our handouts are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting. As part of that philosophy you will recieve detailed notes covering the whole course that will both aid learning both while on the course and in the weeks and months afterwards.
