EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:

This course is designed so that you don’t need a lot of expensive equipment. The tools we use can be quite expensive and is usually purchased over time during our photography life cycle. So we have kept it simple: a camera that allows you select its manual functions, the cameras manual, a charged battery and memory card. You will need a sturdy tripod and a reflector. If you need either, contact Ufocus who may be able to assist you in obtaining one.

PHOTOGRAPHY LEVEL TWO

As a photographer, you will need to master the technical aspects of your camera, before you can be successful in creating a compositional look in your photographs. This course is about using light to shape and create a unique compositional image that evokes emotion to your viewers.

You will gain an understanding of lens technology, this will assist in your lens selection process, prior to capturing that portrait or landscape image. You will get hands on activities that will make you explore the image creation process, and learn to apply the rules and compositional elements that makes a photograph successful.

You will learn how to recognize and take advantage of beautiful natural light. We will also explore how to use this light to create a photo narrative that will give your photos a natural look.

This course is a great introduction course for those who want to learn the art of photography.
