What do I need to join the course
No prior knowledge required.
The course is aimed at those who own an SLR camera and are new to, or had limited experience in photography, but are serious to learn how to take control of a Digital SLR camera themselves to get what they want in a picture.
It is ideal for those who want to become more technically creatively and accurate in their photography, by modification of photographic images.
