Art & Science of Photography Course – Virtual Classroom

Live Photography Course - Virtual Classes

(6 Days, 90 Mins a day)

To learn photography is more than fun, it can be a powerful tool of self-expression. But first, you need mastery of your camera and the critical fundamentals. 

So you can merely look at a scene and know what to do. Like how you can whizz through a gap in traffic before anyone can utter ‘barnacles!’

If you’d like the concepts of photography to be clear as daylight and enshrined in you like a mummy in a pyramid if you’d like to bridge the gap between what you see and what you get, join this photography course online, conducted through video conferencing methods – live. 

Let us train you to be a sharp-shooter. Of the artistic kind.

However, in order to make the most out of the Course, we recommend you hire a DSLR from us for the two days. Please talk to us for details.
