All of our classes involve focussed, classroom based theory learning, but major on practical exercises. We are committed to offering an enjoyable experience as we guide you through comprehensive technical training and build your confidence as you explore your creative ideas and experimenting with various techniques.
Our Tutor has done an excellent job with us. He made sure we understood the basic principles of how to control exposure in our cameras and let us explore and put the skills into practice. He was also strongly encouraging towards leveraging our creativity and the results could be appreciated in the last session when all the students presented their photographs. The course overall strongly exceeded my expectations. Thanks a lot!
