Learn Photography: 2 Days Weekend Workshop
Photography 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 Workshop and let us train you to be a sharp-shooter. Of the artistic kind.
