Advanced Photography
The course covers many important aspects of photography in a combination of lectures, hands-on workshops and studio sessions, technical demonstrations, project work and tutorials. 

In these sessions you will be going into both technical and conceptual elements of photography in more depth, learning more about studio lighting, shooting on location, how to use your DSLR to its full potential and how to work with ideas and projects. You will explore different genres of photography, lighting and camera set-ups in order to give you resources that you need to shoot great images. We will work mainly with DSLR, in studio and on location. You will be introduced to different photographers’ work and taught more about how to see images, how to construct and compose photographs and how to work on projects/assignments. A more advance look at photo editing, printing and how to present your work will also covered on the course.

Whether you have a personal or professional interest in photography, this course is designed to take your skills to the next level and develop how you make and see images. This course would be best suited for someone with a passion for photography, people who might consider a career in photography, a serious amateur wanting to take great photographs, or it would be a great preparation for further study, such as a Bachelor degree in Photography. Anyone wanting to work with the medium creatively or who would like to challenge themselves with working to a brief are encouraged to enrol.

This six-week course follows on from the six week Beginner and six week Intermediate photography course, so to enrol we require you have attended these, or have equivalent experience.
