Introductory Courses


Our Introductory level courses will teach you creative use of exposure settings, including shutter speed, aperture and ISO. You will also learn further compositional and creative techniques.

As with all our core skills classes, the Introductory level courses are delivered by a variety of different methods. You can choose a classroom-based course with practical elements, a fully practical walking course or a digital editing workshop.

If you have some basic practical experience using the camera, these courses are designed for you. Our Introductory courses will help you round out your knowledge and learn more creative techniques.

If you are progressing from one of our Fundamentals level classes you are ideally suited for an Introductory course. Alternatively, these courses are suitable for you if you have a reasonable working knowledge of your camera.
