  • Understanding “depth-of-field”.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who is required to take photographs as part of their work, but who may not use what they consider typical advanced press photography equipment, or who are unfamiliar with either their equipment and/or the basic principles of good photography.

This course integrates well with the Developing digital photographs with Adobe Lightroom course, and the combined two-day course makes the perfect introduction to using digital cameras and developing digital images.
