  • We've all wondered what the fancy buttons on the fancy cameras do and now you have a chance to learn. A Creative Photography Course will begin at Port Mac TAFE on October 26. The course will run on Wednesdays from 5.30pm-8.30pm and includes a Saturday workshop. This course is designed to follow on from the Digital Photography Introduction course., so students should understand core camera principles and digital processing techniques. This program explores state-of-the-art advanced creative and practical aspects of photography such as: Extra long and short shutter speed effects High dynamic range (HDR) capture and processing Extreme depth of field using focus stacking Extreme panoramas using file stitching Advanced image editing techniques Creative masking techniques Blend modes Luminance masking Advanced non-destructive dodge and burn techniques For more info have a look at our website: http://www.northcoasttafe.edu.au/courses/creative-photography.aspx?source=coursesearch
