 Level two is based around:

  • Continuing to master manual camera settings to be in full control of making an image.
  • Lighting and posing people for portraits, including families and weddings.
  • Understanding the three components that control depth of field.
  • Understanding and controlling light. - Ambient, flash, constant, studio and mixed.
  • Landscape photography methods.

The course includes the very popular studio night, and evening field trip for shooting in low light, some image processing and an optional extra Hamilton Zoo field trip.

The tutor, David Rowe, is easy to get along with and is very passionate about sharing his knowledge.

A tripod is recommended for the evening field trips, but not absolutely necessary.
