Additional info:

This course will give you a global view of the basic photography art and technique in order to watch the world with the eyes of a photographer, and stimulate your brain to take good photos in all situations, using whatever camera you have, and most of all, to understand which are good photos and which are not so special.

Composition, Light, Equipment, Flash, Lenses… are the main topic of the course. Theory and practical exercises are mixed together so that you will understand what does it mean to set up yourself the light and the camera for a photographic session and how to handle difficult situations....
