PHOTOGRAPHIC COURSES AND WORKSHOPS
Photographic started off with just one course in photography (analogue, or as we used to call it, film photography). With the huge demand for more specific training, I have developed many other courses and workshops.
Today K Photographic is proud to offer a large variety of courses (more than 15), ranging from easy beginner levels up to intermediate level.
The courses are affordable, easy-to-understand and enriching; the Digital Photography course (course code FP102) is available as a distance learning course, or, as some would know it – a correspondence course.
|Cost||Starting from R2900.00 for 120 min|
|Ages||15 – 75|
|Levels||Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced|
|Experience||1 – 3 Years|
My flagship course (FP102) Digital Photography consists of 8-9 lectures, one class per week.
This course helps you to understand how the digital camera and associated photography hardware actually functions, and teaches you the general techniques of photography. This will equip you with the necessary skills to produce better photographs, even if you don’t own or have access to professional photography equipment. The purpose of this course it is not to teach you about one specific digital camera, but to equip you to use any digital camera more effectively.
Note: Some digital cameras may be inadequate for the more advanced concepts covered in the course, but you will still earn credits if you can explain why your photograph is inferior to the request in the assignments. We allow this to:
teach you photography BEFORE you go and buy an expensive camera, and
to SAVE YOU MONEY by equipping you to make an informed and educated choice when buying camera equipment.
The course starts from novice level and takes you through to freelance level.
The following topics are covered:
Theory and Terminology – This section discusses relevant photography terminology, the definition of a photograph, the reasons why we take photographs, as well as different formats of cameras. Digital workflow is also discussed. We also explore the concepts of vision and color.
