On this course you will learn advanced techniques to improve the quality, lighting and composition of your images. Advanced use of natural, artificial and studio flash lighting. Common uses of photo software. Special techniques; including Panoramas, HDR, and Focus Stacking.

The course will take a deeper look at producing high quality landscapes, portraits and close-up photography. This will include the use of well-known software to give the best final image from each exposure, although the emphasis will always be on getting the best results from your camera.
