What you will study

This course will introduce you to some of the principal functions of your camera and how to over-ride automatic and semi-automatic programmes that many cameras employ, to explore the creative potential of your exposures. The digital revolution has enabled old darkroom techniques to be replicated on the computer screen, and some more complex image manipulation to take place, as you are challenged to use your photographic skills to express ideas and concepts
