Course Outcomes

We divide our programmes into three sections that allow students to progress gradually at a steady pace. In the first section of the course, participants will gain experience using all the skills required to be expert photographers. To begin, they’ll be given a historical overview of photography and learn about its numerous applications. Next, they’ll gain experience using the equipment necessary to take amazing photos, including different cameras, lenses, backgrounds, umbrellas and lighting. Finally, they’ll be instructed in the techniques needed to use composition, exposure, and depth of field, for instance.

MORE
In the second section of the course, students will be able to edit their photos using a variety of programmes such as Wondershare Fotophire, Adobe Photoshop, Corel AfterShot Pro, DxO Photolab, PicsArt Photo Studio, Polarr Photo Editor, Luminar, Affinity Photo.

To round off the skills and techniques learned, participants from all of our Tech Immerse courses will come together to work on an exciting project that will see them design and create an innovative product. Through this collaboration, participants will see how their chosen field fits into the bigger picture of commercial work. As a result, they’ll gain a better understanding of what actual photography work entails and gain some insight into other technical disciplines.

Students in this course will receive personalised feedback from their teachers about their performance, the material covered, and even a list of individualised suggestions for further study.
