Intermediate/Advance Digital Photography Course in Athlone

 

I am delighted to announce my intermediate/advanced photography course for photographers that know the basics but want to go to the next level with their photography.  It is starting on Thursday 31st of January at 7pm in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel.

Who is the course for?

This course is for anybody that already understands their camera.  They know what the exposure triangle is and how they are all interrelated.(Shutter, Aperture and ISO).  They know how to compose photos and how to edit them in Lightroom.  It is a follow on to the beginner course that I have taught for the past number of years in Athlone.  https://www.liamkidney.com/blog/digital-photography-course-athlone-2/
