You will also learn about doing in-camera special effects that you see all the pros do!

The full guide will provide you with the practical knowlege needed to work in studio with strobes, or setting up 3 point lighitng with off camera flash, but most importantly, you'll gain full control of your images' tonalities and overall mood under any lighting conditions.

Class structures are mixed with Photo Critiquing HW, Verbal Instruction and Hands-on Exercises. A mixture to cater to all learning types. Additionally, you'll develop your own photo project and will have the option to showcase at the end of the course (optional).
