Exposure Control and Graduated Filters - Camera Images ‘Short’ 3 hour course that can be taken on its own or combined with others on , and we have also covered a little on this. In under half the time, the same ground cannot be covered as in the Masterclass but the basics and areas that are either of most interest or most relevant to your photographic interests can be covered. 

Exposure Masterclass run by Photography Skills. The object is to be able to manage exposure in just about any situation, coping with challenging situations and extremes, as well as being in creative control at all times. This, like several others, may at first seam like a simple subject but is an interesting and exciting range of knowledge and skills that allows you not only to get the right exposure in more situations but to understand why problems arise and how to overcome them. You take away with you both the understanding and skills as well as an exposure aid that is exclusively produced for clients of Camera  Images and Photography Skills.

Black & White Masterclass. Dual tone, sepia and  Black & White photography is popular at the moment and more people wanting to both understand it and get to grips with producing stunning and memorable results.  The Photography Skills Masterclass on Black & White Photography covers this in detail, covering filters and when they are used, in camera and editing methods to get good results.
