This is a practical based Photography course. Part of the time is in the classroom, part outside in the vineyard. It is aimed at beginners who own a Digital SLR camera and who want to take more creative control of their Digital SLR. If you use the green auto button then this class is definitely for you.

Learn to speak the language of your camera and how to create various effects, such as a shallow depth of field, freezing & blurring motion as well as panning moving subjects. Make the most out of your lens and learn how various focal lengths alter the image and how to use the lens creatively. This course is an introduction to photography and by the end you will understand more than basic elements of your camera control and understand techniques that you can use to your creative advantage.

The computer is now an essential part of modern photography and the latter part of the course introduces Lightroom and demonstrates the basic steps to image improvement and enhancement. This fun short course will help make you a better digital photographer.
