Basic Landscape Photography Course (1month, 5 sessions)

Have you just bought a camera? 

Or is the camera you got months ago just sitting in your cupboard stuck on automatic mode?

Or do you want to learn how to capture our stunning landscapes here in South Africa? 

If you answered yes to any of these, then this may just be the course for you. It will cover all the basics you need to know to operate your camera in manual mode, as well as covering key areas of composition and focusing. This course is geared towards landscape photography, so a keen interest in this area is recommended.
