Photography (Intermediate)

1. Overview

Expand your creative skills and understanding of the camera through both studio and location photography.

Build up your creative skills and be encouraged to try medium format film cameras with this course taught by our specialist staff.

The course will build and expand the student's creative control of the camera and further develop darkroom skills.
