This course aims to teach the very basics of Digital Photography utilising the settings and controls of your camera. Explore photo manipulation using Adobe Photoshop to produce stunning digital prints. For the first session you will need your camera and the manual if you have one, memory card and USB lead to connect to a computer. A book for your notes. Suggested Equipment: Whilst a digital compact camera is acceptable, to get the most from this course we recommend that students have a dslr camera (digital Single Lens Reflex camera).
