Intermediate Photography
Weekday Evening Class

This is our new and highly recommended photography class if you already know basic photography concepts (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, depth of field) and functions of your camera (when to use different shooting modes, different focus modes, etc) and you want to improve in all fields.

*** If you are not yet fully comfortable with these concepts, we recommend our beginners weekday class instead. ***

This class consists of 2 hour weekly classes over 5 weeks. Coming out of this course, you will be able to start recognizing good light, know how to capture any moment, use available light or use flash and know what to do during editing. In other words, you will learn all you need to know to take great photos.

If you expect to miss one of the sessions due to your schedule, no problem. You can always join the same session from the following month’s course.

The homeworks are specially designed to make you use what you have already learned and encounter problems that we will cover in the next session. This way, you will both internalize what we already covered and come to the session with correct questions and open mind.

Course Requirements:

  • Basic knowledge of exposure triangle, depth of field, camera functions.
  • Your camera: DSLR or mirrorless or superzoom
  • No camera? No problem. We offer free camera hire during the course (just tell us in advance).
  • Positive attitude and passion for visual arts 🙂

Course Program by week:

  • Week 1: Working the scene, “Crash Composition” – how to capture any moment.

  • Week 3: How to manage light + using flash
  • Week 4: Portrait photography tips + The art of editing
  • Week 5: Editing continued + Cameras, Lenses, photography gear.

The first 20 mins of each session will be dedicated to going through your homework photos and giving you personal constructive feedback.
