What is Digital Photography

More than 90% of all cameras sold today are digital, but not many owners take full advantage of the power at their disposal. With your digital camera you will achieve great picture quality. Furthermore, you can shoot and store literally hundreds of photographs and instantly review and reshoot to correct mistakes. You can do this at no additional cost – that’s the beauty of digital photography! You can improve your images on computer, correct badly lit pictures, adjust colours, and apply special effects. The possibilities are practically endless

The Certificate in Digital Photography will teach you to take full advantage of the features in your digital camera, and will help you to become a handy digital photographer in no time. You will learn to manipulate images professionally, whilst at the same time we’ll look into traditionally complex topics such as pixels, depth of field and F-numbers, explaining them in simple language and illustrating their use in practical situations. We’ll also work through numerous image editing examples that are done on a computer so that even as a novice you can produce professional results.
